Zucchini Bread

Franklin has a great farmer’s market and I might go a little bit over board when I visit them on Saturdays. Roasted and grilled zuchinni is so delicious, that it rarely makes it to my plate from the grill or stove top.

Recently, I was thinking of a different way I could use it. It occurred to me that I had never made zucchini bread and that all the times I had tried it, it was dry and tasteless. I wanted to like it though and so I set out on a quest to make it delicious.

I love any green vegetables and now I have found a way to sneak them into a sweet snack! Now granted, this snack is also packed with oil, sugar and carbs, but there is zucchini tucked away in there.
I rest my case.

I really don’t consider myself a baker, but this bread was not at all difficult and we ate every crumb!

grease and flour a bundt pan or two 8 x 4 inch pan

beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar together in a large bowl. add sifted ingredients to the mixture, and beat well. Stir in zucchini until well combined. pour batter into prepared pan(s).
bake bundt pan for approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes. bake loaves for approximately 50 minutes. i like to peek at and knife test mine about 10 minutes before i think i may take them out. i would rather they be a little under done, than over done and dry.
