Zucchini Nut Bread

My blog is so neglected.. we recently have a new addition to our home ( pup) and of course the 4 year old son, teenagers.. you know the drill..  I was recently  re-accepted into  my Taste of Home Field Editor position, so I am celebrating by making as many recipes as I can out of the June / July issue.
We are very much loving this recipe from Kevin Bruckerhoff, in Cincinnati, MO. 

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini 
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Grease two 8x4-in. loaf pans. In a large bowl, beat sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla until well blended. In another bowl, whisk flour, salt, baking soda, lemon peel, cinnamon and baking powder; gradually beat into sugar mixture, mixing just until moistened. Stir in zucchini and walnuts.
  • Transfer to prepared pans. Bake 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).

You know I never had zucchini bread and I never made it. I need to get out my comfy zone and try it one day. By the way beautiful photo and nice receipt.

love the lemon peel in there! What are the orangey looking things in it--did you add some orange peel too?

Thank you Lora :) Veronica, you have a keen eye. I had forgotten that I added golden raisins. :)
