I hope all of you had a fabulous Labor Day! It is always awesome having a long weekend, even if you are totally boring like us and all you do is spend the day relaxing and enjoying a BBQ. 🙂
Today I am sharing my final zucchini recipe of the season. It’s another yummy zucchini bread recipe. Yes, I realize that half of the quick bread recipes in my recipe index are for zucchini bread. What can I say. We love us some good zucchini bread around here.  This version is moist and fruity, thanks to the addition of pineapple and craisins. I love it with nuts, but you can leave them out if you have an aversion.

Pineapple Cranberry Zucchini Bread

3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 20 oz can crushed pineapple
3 eggs
3/4 cup oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
1 cup chopped cranberries (or Craisins)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. Drain pineapple, keeping 1/3 cup of the juice. Blend pineapple and 1/3 cup juice in blender till smooth. Whisk in eggs, oil, and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients. Fold in zucchini, cranberries, and nuts.

Pour into two large (9×5″) loaf pans that have been well greased and floured. I like to use parchment paper for best results. Bake at 325° for about 60 minutes, or till toothpick comes out clean.


  1. I just made this recipe and the top turned out really nice and golden but the inside was very undercooked. I am not sure what happened. Maybe I did not squeeze the juice out of the shredded zucchini or there was too much oil. It smells great and the goey undercooked bread tastes yummy, just need to figure out where I went wrong.

    • Dang, I hate it when that happens! My guess is that you probably just needed to bake it a little longer. I have discovered that ovens vary greatly! I have one that bakes super hot on the bottom, so I bake my quick breads on one of the top racks. Crazy. Next time you make it, just make sure a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. That’s the only way to tell if it really is done.
