I love preparing foods for my family to snack on during the day. Having goodies around that are full of ingredients that I control, and NOT full of preservatives, makes me feel good about letting my family eat them. Baking different breads is one of my favorite things to do. I found this zucchini bread recipe while looking through fall-weather yummies, and had to try it out. It is absolutely delicious, and though sweet, is full of healthy zucchini squash. Trick your family into eating their vegetables!! Ingredients: 3 eggs 1 cup vegetable oil 2 cups white sugar 2 cups grated zucchini 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 3 cups all-purpose flour 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Directions: Preheat oven to 325. Grease two inch loaf pans.
In a large bowl, beat eggs until light and frothy. Mix in oil and sugar. Stir in zucchini and vanilla. Combine flour, cinnamon, soda, baking powder, salt and nuts; stir into the egg mixture. Divide batter into prepared pans.
Living in small town Oklahoma, I am married to the sweetest man you will ever meet. We have five young children, so I would now consider myself a professional juggler. I'm a wannabe crafter, cook, baker, and gardener. Some might call me crunchy. I'm okay with it.
