We are still enjoying a good harvest of our zucchini, and there are a number of ways we like to eat it. I am sharing a recipe for Zucchini Bread with you today. This recipe comes from The Table at Grey Gables, a cookbook published in 1998.
|Enjoyable with a cup of tea.|
1 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup oil
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 cups all-purpose flour (I used half whole wheat).
2 cups grated zucchini
2 cups coarsely chopped nuts
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan or two 5 x 3-inch loaf pans. (I used two 8 x 4 pans).
- In a large bowl beat the eggs. Add the sugar and the oil, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the remaining ingredients except the nuts and blend well. Fold in the nuts. Pour the batter into the prepared pan(s). Bake for 1 hour.
This is good for an afternoon snack. In the above picture, some of you may recognize the design of the teapot/cup. It was a gift from Munchomom for Mother's Day a few years ago, and is designed by Susan Branch.
This has been a full day here. There is a Second Friday Bridge group at my church, and I am part of the 24 total who are signed on to play once a month. It is always good fellowship, whether the cards are good or not.:-) Mine were just mediocre today.
Our temperature is higher today, yet we are still able to enjoy a nice breeze.
If you keep up with horse racing in the spring, you will have heard that I'll Have Another will not be racing this week-end due to injury, so there will be no Triple Crown winner this year. I still plan to watch the race, though.
Thank you for following along, and I really enjoy your comments.
