Zucchini Bread

I have always loved zucchini bread. I’ve never been too good at gardening. I should restate that. I can grow weeds very well! Its the things I want to grow…zucchini being one of those things…not so much. I am always appreciative if I am offered some of the fresh stuff and will never say no! 

I use a very simple recipe. First, the ingredients: 

  • 1 cup Oil
  • 3 whole Eggs, Slightly Beaten
  • 2 cups Grated Zucchini
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups Granulated Sugar
  • 3 cups Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt

I often times add other things like walnuts or raisins. Have even grated some carrot a time or two. But this time it was just as the recipe says!

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans (this makes a double batch of bread).

First things first: grate the zucchini! 

In a large bowl, combine oil, slightly beaten eggs, grated zucchini, vanilla and sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

 Gently add the dry flour mixture to the egg batter, stirring until completely combined. Once fully incorporated, pour batter into prepared loaf pans and bake for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Serve warm with butter! Very simple and delicious!
