And sorry about your cabbage. Josh got a little carried away...oops! He took the whole plant. We owe you!
Below is the zucchini bread recipe from Everyday Food. I chose this recipe because of the brown sugar. A lot zucchini bread recipes call for white sugar only...well, I am a fan of the brown! The bread was soft, moist, and the brown sugar really came through for me! I love the spices too! It was delicious. This recipe is a keeper.
What a great way to sneak in veggies!
Fresh from the oven!
Little bits of green in every slice!
Sliced and ready to eat!
Zucchini Spice Bread
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1 large zucchini
- 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan with cooking spray, and set aside. Grate zucchini on the large holes of a box grater (to yield 1 3/4 cups); set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together sugars, oil, vanilla, and eggs.
2. Into a small bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and salt. Add flour mixture to egg mixture, and stir to combine well. Stir in grated zucchini.
3. Pour batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes; invert onto a wire rack, then reinvert, top side up. Cool completely before slicing.
