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
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.
