There is a TON of zucchini growing in my garden right now and we’re doing everything with it, but of course, everyone’s favorite is zucchini bread.
Here’s Grandma’s recipe
1 c. melted butter or melted lard or oil
2 c. sugar
1 T. vanilla
1/2 c. walnuts (or other)
2 c. finely grated zucchini
3 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 T. cinnamon
1 t. salt
1/2 T. baking powder
Mix eggs, fat, sugar and vanilla thoroughly in large bowl. Separately, sift together flour, soda, cinnamon, salt and powder and then mix with wet ingredients. Fold walnuts and zucchini into dough.
Pour mixture into 2 greased and floured 8″x 5″ pans
Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 min- 1 hour
Let cool and enjoy!
Note: Zucchini can be GMO. 😦 So look for organic if you don’t want spliced DNA in your zucchini. Or, come get some of mine. Totally GMO free. 🙂 Seriously, I have SO MUCH. You’d be doing me a favor to take some off my hands. 🙂
