MISS SUE'S ZUCCHINI BREAD
This is a recipe from a very good friend of mine who agreed to share it with me and of course, all of you. Miss Sue is a preschool teacher and loved by her kids and parents too.
In the summer, there is so much zucchini (especially if you grow it in your garden) that I'm always looking for new ways to use it. In this version, I've left out the raisins...I would send every single raisin in the world to a bottomless pit, but some people like them, Sue included. So, if you like raisins, you can add them, if not, just double up the walnuts.
Here's what you'll need
- 2 1/2 cups zucchini
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 3/4 cups white sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 cups flour
- 1.2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup raisins (optional, if you think they're gross)
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- ...or 1 cup chocolate chips
Now, let's put it together
- peel and grate zucchini coarsly
- in a bowl, beat eggs until frothy
- add oil, sugar, vanilla and grated zucchini and mix well
- in a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients
- next, combine wet and dry ingredients
- pour into greased bread tins and bake in a preheated 325° oven for 1 hour and fifteen minutes.
- carefully tilt the bread pan and remove the loaf
- slice and smear with lots of butter or cream cheese while it's still warm and enjoy!
