Well I started out with the gigantic zucchini that I found this week at the farmers market. I jumped online to one of my favorite sites for recipes, Allrecipes, and found a fabulous sounding recipe for Zucchini Bread. Then I just followed some instructions and poof I cooked BREAD FROM SCRATCH!!!!!
So what do you need?
1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons lemon zest
***NOTE*** I eliminated the lemon zest because I didn't have any. And it is still super yummy!
And how do you put it all together?
Turn the oven on and set to 325 degrees F
Grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
In a bowl, beat together the zucchini, sugar, egg, and oil.
In a separate bowl, mix up the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder and cinnamon (and lemon zest if you use it). I then dumped the wet stuff and the dry stuff into my KitchenAid Mixer
and turned it to the "stir" option. When it is well blended pour the batter into the baking pan.
Bake 45 minutes in the oven, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool and enjoy!!
Seriously this is so fabulously yummy! Hubbs-to-be had to remove himself from the kitchen area to keep from eating every last crumb!!
