The Best Zucchini Bread Recipe

Making zucchini bread is such a delicious treat for the whole family! I sooo wish I still had some of this fabulous sweet bread laying around my kitchen still. It literally was gone in about 60 seconds with all of the boys in my house. Soft sweet bread with a heavy serving of icing….perfection. Grab that zucchini in the refrigerator or garden and get baking, you’ll be glad you did!

Fill your mini loaf pan about 3/4 full. My mini loaf pan is from NordicWare, but any brand will do. Check your local kitchen store, even Target and Walmart I bet sell them. Totally optional but absolutely delicious is to sprinkle the tops of the batter with some sanding sugar. If you don’t have sanding sugar, granulated works just fine too 🙂

    I made this successfully for a couple of years. Now the white chocolate chips melt every time. I don’t understand the problem. ??

    Hi…does the zucchini need to be squeezed out? I think mine had too much moisture so the result was ugly, but tasted great. Thanks!!

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net
    the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that
    they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail
    upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    This looks delish! My kids don’t like white chocolate, do you think it would turn out just as good with either regular chocolate chips or the cinnamon chips?

    That zucchini bread sounds to be very good, but I it would be great if there are a picture of cuted one to see the inside consistence because I tried some different recipes for muffins and bread with zucchini and the result was not very good. They were like wet inside ๐Ÿ™ May be I’m doing something wrong.

  6. Heather @ Shards of Lavender

    I love that you made this bread into mini loaves and included white chocolate chips. The drizzle of frosting on top really finishes them off nicely! We’ll be trying this real soon…

  7. Elizabeth

    Those are adorable! I made zucchini bread this weekend but now I need to make another batch so I can add the white chocolate chips and icing! The most delicious way to use up the overabundance of zucchini, for sure!

  8. Megan {Country Cleaver}

    I haven’t had anything zucchini yet this summer!! I HAVE To start with these!! Jenny these are too perfect.

  9. Ali | Gimme Some Oven

    I love that you made these mini’s! So cute — and the icing is definitely the “icing on the cake”! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. shelly (cookies and cups)

    I need one of those mini muffin pans!! Also, the heavier handed the icing, the better ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    I love that you made mini loaves rather than say muffins or a full size loaf – so adorable! And that is truly the icing on the cake pinned!
