  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups zucchini shredded
  • 3 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 cup walnuts optional


  • In a mixing bowl mix the oil, sugar, and eggs together; add zucchini and vanilla.
  • Sift together the flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda and baking powder.
  • Add flour mixture to zucchini mixture and mix well.
  • Add the lemon peel and walnuts. Stir until well blended.
  • Divide into 2 greased loaf pans. Bake at 325°F for 50 - 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.


  • Lemon peel can be substituted for freshly grated orange peel
  • Substituting lemon juice for lemon peel will not provide the same fresh burst of flavor
  • 2, 3 or 4 cups of shredded zucchini can be used based on preference
