As anyone who has ever planted a zucchini plant knows, you get a lot of zucchini. And so begs the question: What do I do with all of it? One excellent way to make good use of this marvelous squash is to make zucchini bread -- and so now I will share with you an excellent recipe.
This recipe is not only good, I don't think I have ever screwed it up. It comes out right every time. This zucchini bread is moist, extremely flavorful -- it's terrific. And rumor has it that it wil increase your lifespan by 7.3 years, on average, according to some top scientist somewhere, I'm sure.
I hope you try it:
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup of vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups shredded zucchini
3 cups of flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1.2 tsp baking powder
3 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup walnuts
This is not rocket science. Just mix together all the ingredients in large bowl. As for the zucchini, I like to blend mine in a food processor till it gets just mushy. I use the Vita-Mix. But just as often I use an ordinary cheese grater, and that works perfectly.
Makes two loaves. Use regular-sized bread pans. Fill them about 3/4 to the top.
Bake at 350 to 375 for 35 to 40 minutes! Ta-da! You're done!
