Flo's Zucchini Bread Recipe


Iris asked for the zucchini bread recipe. Flo (Prissy on the blog) was very generous and I don't think she would mind if I shared her recipe especially since today would have been Flo's 95th birthday.

The recipe makes two loaves and is a sweet bread. You can probably cut down on the amount of sugar.


3 cups All-Purpose Flour
2 cups Sugar
1 cup Vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground cloves
2 1/2 - 3 cups grated zucchini
1 cup walnuts
1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 oF.

Grease two 9 x 4 inch loaf pans

In a bowl, grate zucchini and drain well. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves.

In a second bowl beat eggs, oil, and vanilla.

Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients in the large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.

Fold in zucchini, walnuts raisins.

Divide batter between 2 loaf pans.

Bake on middle rack in oven 45 - 60 minutes until a cake tester poked into the loaves comes out dry.

Remove loaves from oven and allow to cool 15 minutes.

Turn out loaves onto a cooling rack and allow to cool thoroughly.

Enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee.  Happy Birthday, Flo! ☕💐 I really miss you.


  1. The year we had our garden up north I gave away sooooo much zucchini the neighbors would pretend not to be home when they saw me coming! I then tried to give them zucchini bread......same outcome! LOL :-/

    1. They must have thought zucchini bread was Summer fruit cake 😺

  2. Happy birthday Flo! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  3. This sounds delicious! I love zucchini bread! :-)

  4. Thanks. I am also printing it out to have it.

  5. thanx for sharing this recipe; will show to mom ...I just gave her 5 zucchini last week ...home grown...{ not me tho :) ♥♥

    1. If she uses Flo's recipe, let me know what she thinks of it

  6. This sounds beyond tasty:)
    Thanks for sharing.

  7. My zucchini plant died a horrible overly wet death. Never even got any squash blossoms when they were plentiful. I ended up buying zucchini this week, but used it to make a zucchini/green bean/tomato skillet meal. Never thought of making bread, since IU'm not much of a baker. Thanks for the recipe. I copied it to my files just in case!

    1. That's sad about your zucchini. Too bad you didn't live closer. I think we're going to have more than we can use.

  8. Those loaves look great.

    All the best Jan

  9. I will have to make this recipe for my mom! Thanks CJ! Happy Birthday Flo!!
