  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 435g
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups grated zucchini 260g (unpeeled, gently packed into cup)


  • Preheat oven to 350F (175C) and grease and flour a 9x5 loaf pan (shake out excess flour). Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs until lightly beaten.
  • Add sugars, oil, and vanilla extract and stir until well-combined.
  • In a separate, medium-sized bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt).
  • Gradually add dry ingredients to wet, stirring until just-combined. Do not over-mix!
  • Add zucchini and gently fold in until completely combined (again, don’t over-do it when stirring).
  • Transfer batter to prepared pan and bake on 350F (175C) for 65-75 minutes or until a toothpick or wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes then run a knife around the inside of the bread pan to loosen the sides of the zucchini bread and carefully invert onto a cooling rack to cool completely. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
