Here is just one great recipe to use up all the zucchini floating around this time of year.
3 C. flour (I use 1/2 unbleached, 1/2 whole wheat pastry flour)
1/2 C. oil
1/2 C. applesauce or apple butter
2 C. shredded zucchini
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp.baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 C. nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix eggs, sugar, oil, applesauce, zucchini and vanilla in a bowl. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to zucchini mixture and stir to combine. Place mixture in 2 greased loaf pans. Bake for 60-65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool on wire rack, wrap and freeze.
*Zucchini bread makes a quick easy breakfast with some yogurt and fruit.
*Fruit breads are great to have on hand for last minute company or to share with a family in need.
