Zucchini Bread

Zucchini bread (click here for larger image) is the perfect quick bread, in my opinion. Moist, tender and sweet, but not cloying, this zucchini bread recipe is loaded with flavor. A hint of orange juice concentrate is the secret ingredient that gives this zucchini bread recipe extra zip!
Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1-3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice concentrate
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease 2 loaf pans.
  2. Beat eggs, oil, yogurt, sugar and orange juice concentrate in a large mixing bowl. Stir in vanilla and shredded zucchini.
  3. In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  4. Stir into the wet ingredients, just until incorporated. Do not overmix. Stir in walnuts, if using.
  5. Divide batter equally among the two prepared pans.
  6. Bake 40 minutes. Insert a knife in the center. If it comes out clean, the zucchini bread is done. If not, bake an additional 10-20 minutes until done.
