How to Grow Zucchini from Seed

Zucchini Bread Recipe with updated Organic Ingredients:

First of all, beat eggs until fluffy. Add sugar, oil, zucchini and vanilla. Mix well. Next, combine flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Add the flour mixture to the creamed zucchini. Stir in nuts and raisins if so desired. Mix until combine but do not beat. Pour into 2 well oiled bread pans.

*Please Note: if using frozen zucchini, you must first thaw the package in the sink as it will drain some. As the result of being frozen, the zucchini will be somewhat watery. Drain off most of this moisture but not all. You do not need to squeeze all the moisture out as your bread will be too dry. Just drain off a little of the excess juice.

Bake for one hour at 350 degrees.

Check to make sure the zucchini bread has fully baked by sticking a knife in the center. If the knife comes out clean, it is finished. If there is still a little batter on the knife, then return the bread to the over for 5 to 10 more minutes.

When the bread has fully baked, remove the pans from the oven, leaving the bread in their pans turn the loaves on their sides on a cutting board to cool.

Cool on one side for 10 minutes and then on the other side for 10 minutes. After cooling for the 20 minutes, run a knife around the edges of the pans to make sure each loaf is loosen prior to removing from the pans.

      I intended to follow this recipe exactly; but life tends to get in the way…
      I forgot I had given my avo oil to my daughter several weeks ago, then realized I didn’t have any other oil in the house. I had one stick of kerrygold butter and 2 packets of organic GOGO Squeeze cinnamon applesauce so i subbed those in. Oh my gosh! I’ve never liked zuch bread before, but I’m in love now! Thank you for a base recipe I will use forever.
