1 cup vegetable oil (I do 1/2 c. oil and 1/2 c. applesauce- you won't miss the oil!)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups grated zucchini (I use 3 cups and it's great!)
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Grease and flour two 8 x 4 inch pans. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Sift flour, salt, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon together in a bowl.
Beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar together in a large bowl. Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture, and beat well. Stir in zucchini and nuts until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake for 40 to 60 minutes, or until tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack for 20 minutes. Remove bread from pan, and completely cool.
Such a great recipe- I think it is much healthier with the revisions I made and still tastes like a dessert. I just wish my garden was growing a little bit more zucchini!
I am a collector of recipes. I am constantly finding more recipes to try from blogland, newspapers, cookbooks, magazines...and when I make them, IF I think they are worth making again, I will post them here to my online cookbook!
I like to use ingredients that most people usually use and have available, though I like to experiment with more exotic ingredients on occasion as well.
I really tend to favor the sweet side of food. So you'll find a lot of dessert recipes here.
I am all about trying new recipes. If you've got to make dinner every night, why not mix it up a bit?
