Zucchini Bread Recipe

z-bread-1

Ah, summer!  If you’re lucky enough to have a garden, you may have zucchini coming out of your ears right now.  And since one can only eat so much steamed or sautéed zucchini, I thought this would be a great month to share this zucchini bread recipe.

Yardless, I have to buy my zucchini from the grocery store, but still love using my favorite squash in this simple and delicious bread.  It’s great for sharing, but tasty enough that you may want to keep the whole loaf to yourself.  It’s versatile, too – zucchini bread is great for breakfast, a snack, or dessert!

Oh, and if you’ve never had zucchini bread, and think the idea of having a veggie in a dessert bread seems odd, trust me – you’ll love it!  Once upon a time it sounded strange to me, too, but once I tasted this recipe I was quickly converted into a fan.  I think you will be, too!

Zucchini Bread Recipe

*

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup sugar
1 cup finely shredded zucchini
1 egg
¼ cup vegetable oil
¼ teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the first five ingredients together and set aside.  Beat together the sugar, shredded zucchini, and egg.  Add oil, and lemon peel, mix well.  Stir dry ingredients into zucchini mixture and mix.  Turn the batter into a greased 8” x 4” x 2” loaf pan.

Bake for 55 – 60 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes.  Remove from pan; cool thoroughly on a rack.  Wrap and store overnight before slicing – if you can wait that long to eat some!
