This easy zucchini bread is super easy because it's made using a cake mix, so it mixes together quickly and comes out moist and delicious every single time.
Print Recipe


  • 1 (15 ounce) box yellow cake mix (I used Betty Crocker Super Moist Yellow Cake Mix)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted (1/2 stick)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 cups shredded or grated zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or chocolate chips (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Generously grease and flour (or spray) an 8x4-inch loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients (except for the shredded/grated zucchini) with an electric mixer on medium until well mixed.
  • Add the zucchini and mix in by hand.
  • Add the batter to the pan and bake for approximately 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with either a few moist crumbs on it or clean, but with no raw batter. (Start checking at about 40 minutes.)
  • Remove the bread from the oven and set the pan on a cooling rack for about 20 minutes, then remove the loaf from the pan and let it cool completely on the rack.
  • Make sure to let the bread cool completely before cutting or the bread may crumble.


Feel free to add raisins, white chocolate chips, chocolate chips and/or nuts to the bread batter.
This bread can be stored at room temperature, covered well, for about two days, then store the bread in the refrigerator for another 3-4 days to prolong freshness. This bread is best eaten at room temperature or warmed. You can also add a little butter to a slice and warm it up in the microwave for about 10 seconds.
