Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

Back on the Carbs.
Well, not exactly.
I love fried zucchini. Anything fried even a Twinkie.
Include vegetables.
Here is something just as good only a little lighter and less fattening.
Zucchini Bread.
I remember as a kid we used to make Pepperoni Bread.
Can you imagine?
Meat and bread. Almost as good as meat and potatoes.
Beats that meat quiche !
You can make bread out of anything.
I have blogged about making Brown Bread, Irish Soda Bread, and more...
Here is Zucchini Bread.
Just think of it as "Bread and Veggies."
What a concept!
Getting your kids to eat 2 food groups.
Zucchini Bread:

2 cups of sugar (or substitute with 1 cup of Splenda)

1 cup of canola or vegetable oil

3 tsp. of vanilla extract

1 tsp. of baking soda

3 cups of flour

2 tsp. of cinnamon
1 tsp. of salt
3 eggs lightly beaten
1/4 tsp. of baking powder

1/2 cup of chopped nuts
( you can use walnuts, pecans, almonds, pine nuts)

2 1/2 cups of shredded zucchini

Mix all the ingredients. Place the mixture in a pre-greased aluminum cooking pan
or baking pan.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and cook for approximately 1 hr. until lightly browned.

Eat your veggies. And your bread.
Maybe, Steven will give you a dessert recipe...
