  • 1 1/2 c. sugar

  • 3 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 c. crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 c. walnuts, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 325°.

    1 c. oil, 1 1/2 c. sugar, 3 large eggs, 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • In a seperate bowl, mix dry ingredients.
    3 1/2 c. all-purpose flour, 1 1/4 tsp. salt, 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • Add zucchini and dry ingredients alternating with pineapple. Mix only until combined. Do not overmix.
    2 c. zucchini, unpeeled and grated, 1 c. crushed pineapple, drained
  • Stir in the chopped walnuts.
    1 c. walnuts, chopped
  • Divide the batter into two well-greased and floured standard-size bread pans, and bake for one hour or until a toothpick comes out with just a few crumbs.
  • Let the bread rest in the pans for about 10 minutes before carefully removing the loaves. If the loaves don't want to slide out, run a knife around the edges to release.
  • Cool. Store in an airtight bag or container.


I like to bag my bread before it's completely cool as it helps to keep more moisture in. And if you won't eat two loaves within a couple of days, freeze one for later.
Serve zucchini bread for breakfast or a snack anytime. Eat it plain or slathered with butter. Or turn it into a yummy dessert by putting on a layer of cream cheese frosting. We used to sandwich two pieces of bread together with cream cheese frosting in the middle. Cut the sandwich in half and serve a platter full of zucchini bread dessert sandwiches.
And don't forget, overbaking will always give you a dry baked good.
