Ingredients

  • 1 cup plus 2 teaspoons sugar divided
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grate zucchini and set aside.  You can squeeze out any excess water at this point. 
  • Grease your loaf pan and dust it with a mixture of 2 teaspoons of sugar and cinnamon. Save another teaspoon of mixture to sprinkle over the top before you bake. More if you really like a cinnamon sugar topping :)
  • Beat together your wet ingredients with a whisk and then add remaining ingredients and stir until blended. Do not over mix. Place in loaf pan and sprinkle on remaining cinnamon sugar mixture on top.
  • Bake for 60 minutes. Check bread after about 50 minutes by inserting a toothpick in center to make sure it doesn't over bake.
  • Let the Zucchini Bread cool 10 minutes before removing it from the pan and cooling it completely. Enjoy!

Notes

Tips for Baking the Best Zucchini Bread

  • Regular or plain greek yogurt is good in this recipe.
  • To store, either seal it in a plastic bag or double-wrap it in plastic and let it sit at room temperature. If it's going to sit for more than 2 or three days, it is safest in the freezer to retain its freshness.
  • Do not over mix your batter to avoid the loaf sinking in the middle while baking.
  • I don't tend to squeeze out excess water from the zucchini unless the water content is really high.
