Marie's Famous Zucchini Bread
Hello! It's Recipe Tuesday and today's recipe comes from my mom, Marie. For as long as I can remember I've had a severe dislike for vegetables. So imagine my surprise when I realized that the delicious bread she had made all through my childhood contained a VEGETABLE.
Now that I'm an adult I've started to look at veggie in a different light, especially if they're disguised in a sweet bread. last week's recipe came from a magazine but this recipe was inspired by a trip to the local Farmer's Market earlier in the summer and seeing some ginormous zucchini's. I remembered my mom's bread and decided to give it a try. It's super easy to make (especially if you have your husband grate the zucchini) and absolutely delicious. We're a fan of walnuts in our house and decided to add those to the mix but you could certainly add pecans if you prefer those.
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts
2 cups grated zucchini
1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease 2 loaf pans.
2. Beat eggs for 2-4 minutes using stand mixer.
3. Grate zucchini and squeeze dry with paper towel. Slowly add zucchini and remaining ingredients; mix until well blended.
4. Bake for 1 hour. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from pan. Enjoy.
