Zucchini Bread The Southern Lady Cooks


This quick bread made with zucchini is so good, I promise it won’t last long. This recipe makes two loaves and it freezes well.  It will keep in the refrigerator for a week, too. Every time I serve this bread, it receives rave reviews.

Ingredients Needed for Zucchini Bread:




Baking soda

Baking powder



Vanilla extract

All-purpose flour

Zucchini, unpeeled,  shredded, and drained.

Walnuts or pecans (Optional)

Recipe Notes: You can leave out the nuts if your family doesn’t like them. You can also add chocolate chips to this recipe, too.  Oftentimes, I make one with chocolate chips and one loaf without them.  Just stir in 3/4 cup chocolate chips into the batter of one of your loaf pans.

Recipe Comments: “This is the absolute best zucchini bread! I swear I can eat an entire loaf by myself. It’s hard to have self-control when this is the house. It’s that’s good!”-Mindy

“This is a favorite at our house… any time of the day!”-Ruth
