Food & Love: Zucchini Bread

Hi everyone!

Welcome to Food & Love! I started this series to document my culinary journey as I try to improve my kitchen skills. I’ll be sharing with you some quick and easy recipes. I’ll try to cook or bake these recipes, and hopefully make something edible for my hubby.


Cooking is Love made edible


Today, I’ll be making two loaf pans of  Zucchini Bread!

I would like to thank Joe and his lovely wife Denise for sharing the recipe with us. Joe doesn’t bake, but he often brings to our workplace a lot of delicious goodies made by Denise. This is one of my favorites, and I’m so excited to learn how to bake it!

  1. Blend together eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, and vanilla.

My hubby volunteered to grate the zucchini while I prepared all the other ingredients. He seemed amused that I’m serious about learning how to bake and he’s been very supportive. Plus, he loves baked treats, and he’s happy to be the first one to try whatever I make!

  1. Zucchini bread is one of those great ways of utilizing vegetables in a “stealth” recipe that is yummy to kids that hate veggies. I love zucchini bread a little more than I love banana bread.

    1. So true, it’s a great way to utilize vegetables and make a yummy treat. I love zucchini bread! Although, you just gave me an idea for another post. I also like banana bread ….. so I guess I’ll be looking for a great recipe for that too. Thanks so much Alice for visiting my page:)

  2. You’re welcome.. happy to share recipes. Why not share the love?! It’s a recipe that everyone loves, and it’s alwats a hit! Happy baking!!!

      1. Never be afraid to try new recipes, and make it your own by adding something to it as well, that’s how I bake.. always experimenting. It’s fun to do that ! I grew up baking, and cooking so it comes easy for me. But the more you do it the more comfortable you’ll get!!!

      2. Thanks for the tips Denise. My hubby is so happy that I’m learning how to bake. I’ll continue with this culinary journey, and hopefully get more comfortable experimenting someday. By the way, I love the Bakers Joy spray. It made things a lot easier:)

      3. You’re welcome. It’s the little advice/suggestions that make your adventure easier and less stressful. I used to use crisco and flour but now I only use that Bakers Joy. And use parchment paper too. Even on the bottom of loaf pans- spray right over it. Helps the breads come right out! Cut the paper to fit inside the pans. Even use it when making cookies. Nothing sticks to it. The best bakers helper ever!!!

  3. The zucchini bread looks delicious! Love that it’s vegetarian and great as a dessert. Big plus that it’s easy to make! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe ♥ – gotta share it with my boyfriend.

    Nancy ♥
