Zucchini Bread


zucchini 2

Whenever I make this quick bread my family always asks without fail "what in the heck are you making??" I respond, "zucchini bread?" "EWWWWW, bread with zucchini in it!" is always their comeback. It's almost like they are struck with a temporary amnesia and have never had zucchini bread before! The story always ends with this delicious bread completely gone 20 minutes after taking it out of the oven! My daughter even asked me the other day, what ever happened to that bread I was making? I giggled and told her, she ate it! This bread is so good your family will never know a vegetable is in it.


3 eggs, beaten
1 cup of butter, softened
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of white sugar
3 tsp. vanilla
3 cups of grated zucchini
3 cups of flour
1 tsp. soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda


Sift in a large bowl, flour, cinnamon, salt,baking soda, and baking powder; set aside. In a mixer mix eggs, sugars, butter, and vanilla. Slowly add in flour mixture, mix until just incorporated. Stir in grated zucchini. Pour into greased and lightly floured loaf pans. Bake at 325 for 60 to 70 minutes.
