Zucchini bread sliced on a plate

Zucchini Bread

“This German recipe has been in my family for three generations. My grandmother began working on it and modified it to make it tasty and delicious. I have to keep it out of sight of the men in my family or they’ll eat it all before anyone else gets a piece.”


3 eggs
2 cups granulated CRYSTAL SUGAR®
3 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups grated zucchini
2 cups plus 1 tablespoon flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
¼ teaspoon baking powder
2½ teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
¾ cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix and beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Then add the oil plus zucchini and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, blend together the last six ingredients. Add to the creamed mixture. Mix well. 
  4. Pour batter into two greased and floured loaf pans.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour.
