Zucchini Bread

To me, this is one of the dishes that sounds really weird and like it would be nasty but when you try it it turns out being delicious! This recipe is so simple, and yet oh so delicious. I’ll show you how i did it.

~2 cups of grated Zucchini (Make sure to ring it out well. We don’t want that excess moisture messin’ with our bread)

~3 Eggs
~2 cups Flour (I like a mix of half whole wheat and half white ap flour)
~2 teaspoon Cinnamon
~1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground Nutmeg
~1 teaspoon Salt
~2 teaspoons Baking Soda
~1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
~2 cups Sugar
~1 cup Vegetable Oil (or grapeseed oil if you've got it!)
~1 Tablespoon Vanilla
~1 cup of Nuts (optional)
Beat eggs for a few minutes in your stand mixer until well mixed and light (If you have one it makes just makes it a lot easier but if not you can still do this by hand).

In a small separate bowl mix together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and the grates rung out zucchini. Make sure that the zucchini is well covered with all the flour and spices. Add in sugar and beat of medium for 2 more minutes.
Slowly add oil and vanilla. Next add the dry mix with the zucchini into the eggs sugar mixture.

Stir and add nuts if adding any. Pour Batter into 2 loaf pans that have been thoroughly rubbed with butter. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until when a tooth pick is inserted it comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before turning out of the pan. Slice and Eat!
