Easy Cake Mix Recipes: Zucchini Bread

Sharing is caring!

I am a bread eater, I just love the fact that it can be sweet or savory.  I love that you can put pretty much anything into bread that you want.  I especially love the way my house smells when bread is baking! But, more than that, this busy Mom of 3 boys loves recipes using spice cake mix!

Kneading and rising and all that jazz takes too long for this busy mom – so, I am all about the boxed cake mix recipes.  You know all those recipes that start with a box of cake mix and then make them better?  Yeah, like this Easy Cake Mix Recipe: Zucchini Bread!

I had a box of spice cake mix and some frozen shredded zucchini that I wasn’t sure what to do with so I was so happy to find a recipe that took care of both. With this recipe I made one loaf and 10 cupcakes and both turned out delicious! Thanks for the easy recipe!
