This Zucchini Bread recipe is my grandmother’s and a family favorite. Whether it’s zucchini season where you live or not, you’ll want to pin this recipe and try it out. I promise it will become the only recipe you use!
The women in my family have always enjoyed being in the kitchen, cooking and baking. I love making new recipes that I just discovered, but there’s something to be said for tradition, too. My grandma loved to cook and bake for her family, and she had several beloved recipes.
Thankfully we still have a lot of them, including this – her famous zucchini bread. For all I know it could be an old Betty Crocker recipe, but to me, it will always be hers. It IS published in her church’s cookbook after all! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Feel free to add your own touches to this recipe. It’s great with shredded coconut, lemon or orange zest, or especially with chopped walnuts!
