RECIPE: Zucchini Nut Bread

Can you tell we have zucchini coming out of our ears?  Growing up, this was something my Momma made us alot.  It was so good!

Zucchini Nut Bread
3 eggs
2 cup sugar
3/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil or melted butter
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups grated zucchini, liquid drained
3 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped (tossed with 1 Tablespoon flour)

In a large bowl beat eggs, sugar, applesauce, oil and vanilla.  Add zucchini and stir well.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, soda, cinnamon, powder and salt.  Fold in the dry ingredients into the wet and then add nuts.  Pour into 2 greased loaf pans.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour or until the bread tests done with a toothpick.  Cool on rack for 10 minutes.  Remove from pans and cool completely.  Wrap and freeze one for later or for a friend and serve the other.

I cannot wait until the zucchini in my garden is grown. I have a long list of things I want to make with it. One of which is this. Thanks for posting.

Looks good.... I wonder if my husband and daughter would eat this? Hmmm...

Just don't be an idiot like me and forget the baking powder and/or soda in your breads/muffins. I did that this morning when I baked blueberry muffins and WHAT A DISASTER! sigh! So of course I had to write a post about my mishap and include some photos of my mushy-vomit muffins. Check it out if you get a chance!

p.s. - do you have any recipes you've tried to make your own hot pockets or quiches for the kids? I'm looking for ideas for "on-the-go" meals for an upcoming recipe club meeting and I was thinking of trying to make calzones, hot pockets or some other dish that has all the meat/food inside -- perfect for a car ride and busy lifestyle!
