Come summer squash season, little tastes better than moist Zucchini Bread fresh out of the oven. A handful of toasted walnuts gives our easy Zucchini Bread recipe a hint of saltiness and crunch.

The receipt called for 1 egg and it didn't mention vanilla then when you read the audio it says 2 eggs and vanilla what is wrong with this picture?

LOVE this recipe. Since the zucchini started popping this year, I've made 6 or 7 batches of it. I have tried different ratios of whole wheat flour in the mix and found that the bread is so moist, it handles up to 1 cup whole wheat flour (with 1/2 cup all-purpose). So it makes it a little healthier. I also add 1 teaspoon vanilla to each batch. My only complaint is that it doesn't use more zucchini! There's so much this time of year and the recipe only uses 1 cup shredded.

Excellent recipe. Prepared any other way, I can't stand zucchini; but I love this bread. I made it entirely with whole wheat flour, olive oil for the cooking oil, and left out the salt. Came out delicious.

When I printed this recipe it omitted (like it wasn't on the ingredient list) the oil and now I see it on the recipe online but do not see the vanilla that was added in the video. I guess I will just put in a teaspoon? Glad I looked it up!!!!

I always make a triple recipe and use way more zucchini than the recipe calls for (min 4 cups in a triple recipe). Why not when the zucchini are crazy in the garden? Other variations...I use 1/2 wheat flour, 1/2 white. And everyone loves it when I substitute chocolate chips for the walnuts. I also make it in muffin tins and cook for 20 min less than the loaf bread time. Makes for a great way to share.

When I printed this recipe a while ago the oil wasn't on the ingredient list. Now I see vanilla being added in the video that also wasn't on the list. I guess I will just put in a teaspoon? Glad I looked it up!!!
