Zucchini Bread

Pin It
One of my favorite vegetables is zucchini.  I love summer when you can go to your local farmer's stand (or raid your neighbors garden) and get those huge zucchini.  The problem with those HUGE zucchini is that I'm the only one in my house that eats it!

To solve this problem, I decided to make zucchini bread!  Here is a list of ingredients:

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground clove
1/2 teaspoon allspice
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup applesauce
3 cups shredded zucchini
1 cup raisins

To make the bread combine the first 8 ingredients in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs and sugar and vanilla.  Add oil, applesauce, zucchini and raisins.  Stir to combine ingredients.

Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients.  Stir and place in bread pans that have been sprayed with PAM or buttered/flour.  This recipe makes one large loaf and one small loaf.

Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until brown.  When you stick a toothpick in the loaf, it should come out clean or with a few crumbs.

This zucchini bread is so moist!  It is a fantastic recipe.  If you want to get creative, you can substitute crushed pineapple for the applesauce or dried cranberries for the raisins.  If you like nuts, go ahead and add some!
