The ONLY Zucchini Bread Recipe You Need

Of all the zucchini bread recipes out there, I have the ONLY Zucchini Bread Recipe you need!  I use this recipe to make the base of a creamy zucchini cheesecake (totally secret recipe, if I told you, I’d have to kill you) and for many friends and family!  Zucchini season is almost upon us, so what better way to celebrate the zucchini than with a recipe?

ONLY Zucchini Bread Recipe You Need- CookingWithLisaB

ONLY Zucchini Bread Recipe Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose white flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp fresh grated nutmeg (1/2 tsp dry)
1 tsp lemon zest, chopped
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 cup grated fresh zucchini (with skin on)
1/2 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and flour a 9-inch loaf pan.  It’s best if you have a dark pan. I find that a dark pan gives better browning!
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, oil, and brown sugar till smooth.
  4. Next, mix the egg into the butter mixture, till well blended.  Set aside.
  5. In a medium bowl, sift the flour, spices, soda, baking powder, and salt together.
  6. Add in flour mixture, 1 cup at a time till all is smooth.
  7. Place the shredded zucchini onto a tea towel and squeeze out as much water as possible.
  8. Fold in zucchini, pecans, and the lemon zest.
  9. Pour into prepared pan and bake 30-50 minutes or till toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes, then remove and cool completely on rack.
  11. Slice the ONLY Zucchini Bread into 1-inch slices and serve with a slathering of sweet cream butter, if you wish!
