I didn't grow up eating zucchini bread. I didn't grow up with a garden - my thumb was BLACK until just a few years ago when I did the research and figured things out through trial and error.
My Mother In Law grew up gardening. Her father taught ALL THIRTEEN of his children the art of gardening, planting flowers - the whole she-bang. Now - if I had 13 kids - you better believe we would be living on a farm just to feed all those kids!
My husbands Grandpa passed away before he was born so he never had the chance to get to know him (obviously neither did I) but his traditions have been passed down and that is something I really love.
My husbands Aunt Leah makes the most AMAZING zucchini bread on the planet. She shared her simple recipe with me and I've been making it for the last 17+ years.
1 c nuts
3 c flour
1 c sugar
1 t salt
1 c oil
2 t cinnamon
2 c grated zucchini
1 t baking soda
1/4 t baking powder
1 T vanilla extract
Grease the inside of 2 pans and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat eggs with electric mixer, then stir in sugar, oil, zucchini and vanilla. Combine flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda and baking powder. Add to wet mixture and mis well. stir in nuts. Bake for about 1 hour.
* I just throw everything willy nilly into my mixer and let it do the work for me. Also, bc I have a child that has a peanut and tree nut allergy - so I eliminate the nuts. Serve with a pat of cold butter and you'll be in heaven.
