So far every week my CSA has included few zucchini in the box, this week I made the hearty breakfast bread with them.
Zucchini Bread Recipe
Preheat Oven to 350º
- 3 eggs lightly beaten
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- 2 ¼ cups white sugar

- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 2 cups shredded zucchini (about 4 medium size zucchini)
- 3 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup slighty toasted walnut or pecans (optional)
Lightly grease loaf pan or muffin tin.
In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar. Fold in the zucchini. Beat in the flour, salt, baking powder and soda and cinnamon. Transfer to pan of your choice. For a loaf bake 50 min. In muffin tin 15-20 min or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool and then turn out onto wire racks.
