Zucchini Bread

Northwest Pearls: Zucchini Bread In my mother's recipe box, there's a 3x5 notecard with a recipe for Zucchini Bread typed out on it.

My sister thinks it's coffee cake, she wouldn't have tried it if we'd told her it was Zucchini Bread.

It's more of a cake than a bread, a ridiculous amount of sugar goes into the recipe, but it's delicious. I've been eating it for breakfast.

The recipe calls for:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of oil
  • 1 3 cups of sugar
  • 2 cups of peeled and grated zucchini
  • 3 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 3 cups of sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup of chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup of combined raisins, currants, and dates (optional, my mom substitutes these for chocolate chips.)

First you beat the eggs until foamy. Then add oil, sugar, zucchini, and vanilla. Mix well. Then add the flour, salt, soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nuts, and raisins, currants, and dates. Pour batter into two greased/buttered loaf pans.

Bate at 325 degrees for 1 hour.

Recipe makes two loaves.
