Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread is one of those things that immediately sounds delicious if you're in to such things. There are many variations of this bread, but my recipe is an adaptation of my mom's Banana Bread. I've even seen recipes that called for chocolate chips! The possibilities are endless, but anyway you slice it (yeah I went there again! ;op) it's delicious!

What You'll Need:
2 large zucchini, shredded
1/2 cup of safflower oil or unsweetened apple sauce
2 eggs
2 cups of unbleached all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 heaping teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 cup of heavy cream or half and half
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
1 cup of raisins (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Beat together oil (or apple sauce) and sugar. Stir in eggs and zucchini. Add remaining ingredients and place batter into one prepared loaf pan. Bake for 35-30 minutes or until golden brown and sticks done.

I've had a really good chocolate zucchini cake before too. I may have to make one of those before too long! ;o)

this looks so good! do you think I can replace the AP flour with white whole wheat flour or even just regular whole wheat flour and instead of using heavy cream or half and half using buttermilk?

Hi Alice. I sent you an e-mail, but yes you can substitute white whole wheat flour. If you decided to use regular whole wheat flour I'd use a mix of ww flour and all purpose since ww flour is a bit heavier.

Buttermilk would be fine to substitute too!

Vanilla yogurt would work fine too.
