Today was a little cooler, so I baked some loaves of zucchini bread in my tiny kitchen. These freeze really well. (Forgive the shadows in the picture.) I love to smell things cooking in the kitchen! It really makes the house seem like "home". My mother baked almost every day! She still bakes quite often. ( She is almost 80.) I think I got my recipe addiction from her!
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups zucchini, peeled and grated
1 cup nuts (opt.)
3 cups flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
3 tsp. vanilla
Beat eggs until light. Add sugar and oil; beat again. Add vanilla. Mix all dry ingredients, then add to egg mixture. Add zucchini. Have 2 bread pans well greased and bake in 325 degree oven about 1 hour. Test at 50 minutes. Enjoy! ( You may have to adjust this recipe for your area. I live at over 4,000 feet above sea level.)
I don't usually have the dogs in the kitchen when I am cooking. This picture was taken the day before. Phoebe's "daddy" opened a package of cereal to quickly and some fell onto the floor. She ate all she could, as fast as she could! She thinks she may see ( or smell) some more under the fridge. We checked- none there. This little dog is a food manic!
Hope you all have a great week!
