Nutty Zucchini Raisin Bread Recipe








  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • ½ cup apple sauce
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2¼ cups sugar
  • ½ cup of oil
  • 3 ½  cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon        
  • 1 cup of raisin 
  • 1 cup of chopped pecans [walnuts]
  • 3½ cups shredded zucchini


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer beat eggs, applesauce, vanilla extract, sugar and oil. Mix well.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously butter and lightly flour two 8”x4” loaf pans.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg and cinnamon. Stir gently to combine.
  4. Shred zucchini, lightly packing it down as you measure it.
  5. Slowly add the dry ingredients (about ⅓ at a time) mixing as you go – then beat well to fully combine.
  6. With a rubber scraper or wooden spoon, stir in shredded zucchini, nuts and raisins into the batter and mix well.
  7. Pour the batter into each prepared pan.
  8. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out cleanly. (The bake time will vary depending on how much shredded zucchini you add to the batter.)
  9. Remove from the pans and cool on wire racks.
  10. For the topping, use a cream cheese icing recipe
