If you like "breads"- banana, pumpkin, carrot- then you will like Zucchini! The zucchini is naturally full of moisture, which makes the bread really nice and soft. It also has a really nice flavor, which comes through in the bites.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
In a separate large bowl, blend:
2 cups sugar (I did a mix of white and brown sugar, could also see honey working well)
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup veggie oil
1 tsp vanilla- As we all know, I tend to go heavy on this.
1/2 tsp salt
Stir the dry ingredients. Once blended, add:
2 cups grated zucchini (grate w/ cheese grater, squeeze out extra moisture)
1 1/2 cups walnuts
Pour into a loaf pan and bake about 45 minutes, or until toothpick comes clean.
