When you’re in need of Zucchini Bread…

November 1, 2010 No comments

Hi Friends,

This is Kristina posting from Karin’s blog. I just moved into a great new apartment in Orange County and now that I’m not commuting for two and a half hours every day I have a lot more time to cook!

I was wondering if any of you have a great zucchini bread recipe you could share with me here?

Eating warm zucchini bread with coffee (or better yet – a great chai latte!) always makes me think of the crisp Santa Barbara fall and enjoying that snack while studying.

Thanks to any of you who have a great recipe to share!

    Here is Oma’s recipe that has been in the family for at least 30 years. This is one that I have used many, many times.

    Zucchini Bread
    Blend together:
    3 cups flour
    1 ½ cup sugar
    1 t. cinnamon
    1 t. baking powder
    ¾ t. soda
    1 t. salt

    Blend together:
    2 cups grated unpeeled zucchini
    3 eggs
    1 cup nuts
    1 cup raisins
    1 t. vanilla
    1 cup vegetable oil

    Mix dry and wet ingredients together and put into prepared loaf pans.
    Makes 2 loaves.
    Bake at 350 for 45 – 50 minutes

    This is Becky in Indianapolis. The Zucchini Bread recipe is the same as Oma’s …maybe that is where I got it. But it is the best!!
    Here is something different when you have more grated zucchini than you need for the bread recipe.

    1/2 cup buttermilk
    1 tsp. vanilla
    Then add:
    2 1/2 cups flour
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1/4 cup cocoa
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
