Zucchini Bread

What better way to eat your vegetables then in sweet, yummy bread form with the option of chocolate? Our neighbors at Sleepy Hollow Farm have some of the biggest, most beautiful zucchini I have ever seen. Perfect for bread baking.

Zucchini Bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 1c vegetable oil
  • 2c sugar
  • 2c grated zucchini
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3c flour
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 c chopped walnuts
  • 1 c chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp orange zest
Heat oven to 350. Grease two bread pans. Stir together dry ingredients (sugar, flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, baking powder and salt). Now you can mix by hand or use a hand mixer to add the eggs, vegetable oil and vanilla. Then stir in zucchini until well combined. Divide badder into bread pans and bake for 60-70min until a cake tested or tooth pick comes out of the loaf cleanly.
