  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini

For the praline:

  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans


  1. Grease and flour two 8-inch x 4-inch baking pans (standard size loaf pans). Or use a baking spray. Preheat oven to 325 degree F.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs with oil, sugar, vanilla extract and almond extract. Add in flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix until well blended.
  3. Fold in shredded zucchini. Pour batter into two loaf pans. Bake in oven for about 60 minutes. Remove and cool in pans ten minutes. Then remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
  4. While bread is cooling, make the praline topping. In a small saucepan, melt butter with brown sugar over medium high heat. Bring to a boil. Let boil for one full minute.
  5. Remove from heat. Pour hot sauce over bread, using about half of the sauce. Sprinkle with half of the pecans. Repeat. Allow topping to set, about 15-20 minutes. ENJOY.
