Zucchini is Coming
Pretty sure this was the last snow day of the year. . . So this was the weekend.
So I tried zucchini fries in the air fryer last week: FAIL.
But with the leftover zucchini, I found the best zucchini bread recipe: WIN.
Scant 2 cups of AP flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt (scant because I used salted butter)
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup melted butter (recipe called for vegetable oil - but I didn't have any. . .)
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs lightly beaten
2 1/2 cups grated zucchini
Optional: 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
~ Mix together first five ingredients in one bowl.
~ Mix together next five ingredients in another bowl.
~ Shred zucchini (I used two medium sized) and do not drain.
~ Add zucchini to dry ingredients first.
~ Then add wet ingredients and walnuts - mix till just combined.
~ Bake at 350 for an hour in a greased loaf pan - or till toothpick comes out clean.
~ I had to cover with foil to keep from browning too much on top.
