As the late-summer mornings turn breezy and cool, my breakfast cravings have shifted too – a tender slice of zucchini-flecked bread is a scrumptious way to ease the end-of-season blues. Flavored with warming spices, vanilla, and brown sugar, zucchini spice bread is just the thing to devour warm with coffee.

With an irresistible brown sugar crumb topping, it’s no surprise that I’m reaching for slice after slice of this quick bread. Enjoy with a slather of good butter (or Mascarpone), and prepare to chase down every last crumb!

Easy zucchini spice bread flavored with warming spices, vanilla, and brown sugar makes the perfect breakfast or anytime treat! You’ll love this homemade zucchini bread recipe.


Crumb Topping

  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Zucchini Bread

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups grated zucchini
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Make crumb topping: Combine brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a small bowl; add vanilla and melted butter and toss mixture with a fork until crumbly. Chill topping until ready to use.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  3. Make zucchini bread: Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Combine zucchini, sugars, coconut oil, buttermilk, egg, and vanilla in a medium bowl; add to flour mixture and fold in just until combined.
  4. Spoon batter into prepared pan and smooth top with an offset spatula; tap pan sharply. Sprinkle the batter evenly with crumb topping.
  5. Bake bread for 50 minutes, until bread is golden and springs back to the touch. Bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs attached. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes; carefully remove bread from pan and cool completely.

  1. A big issue I have with this recipe, and most online recipes, is the lack of a printer friendly version. I ended up printing a bunch of color pictures and comments and everything but the recipe. I would highly recommend making a printer-friendly PDF that prints on one page.

    1. Hi Mark, I’m sorry about that inconvenience. For future reference, you’ll find the gray print button in the recipe portion of the post, just below the thumbnail photo. If you click on that, it opens the printer-friendly recipe in a new tab.

  2. Oh yes, this would be absolutely perfect for breakfast! Or for an afternoon snack along with a cup of coffee. What a beautiful loaf!

  3. My mouth is officially watering! This bread sounds incredible and a must make. Hope you are doing well.
