Zucchinni Bread

When Austin was younger he was a great eater and would pretty much eat anything you put in front of him or near his mouth...and by most people's standards I guess he still is a pretty good eater for a 16 month old. But ever since he got old enough to have an opinion, he will not touch a vegetable with a ten foot pole. So I have learned a few tricks on how to hide them in foods I know he likes, like bread. Here is a perfect example. Zucchini bread may sound kind of weird but it is really delicious and a great way to get kids to eat a vegetable without them knowing!


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 cups grated zucchini


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and baking powder.
  3. Beat eggs. Add sugar, vanilla, and oil and mix well. Add zucchini to egg mixture. Add dry ingredients, mixing well.  Pour into 2 greased loaf pans.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour.
