Default Zucchini bread (It's that time again!)




Adapted from Zucchini Bread, James Beard's
"Carl Goh's Zucchini Bread" from James Beard's Bread Cookbook
(modified to be low-fat) Makes two loaves

3 eggs (or Egg Beaters)
1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
(this has already been reduced--don't reduce much further!)
1/3 cup oil plus 2/3 c. applesauce (or 1 cup cooking oil)
2 c. coarsely grated raw zucchini (or golden zucchini)
3 tsp. vanilla extract
3 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg, pinch of cloves and allspice
1 c. coarsely chopped pecans (or walnuts)
raisins, optional (we don't like 'em)
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Grease well and flour two 9 inch loaf pans.
Sift together flour, leavenings, and spices, set aside.
Beat eggs till light and foamy, stir in sugar, vanilla, and oil,
mixing well. Add dry ingredients gradually while still stirring to
combine Add zucchini, mix well, then nuts. Pour into pans.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for ~50-60 minutes or until a tester
comes out clean. Cool on rack about 15 minutes, then remove from pan
and continue to cool until room temperature. Wrap securely. Serve
sliced, spread with cream cheese.

This bread freezes very well. It's great for breakfast.

Yum!! I hope a frendly gardening neighbor leaves me some on my
doorstep...

I also like making savory zucchini pancakes when the "bounty" comes
in.

Thanks for posting that. Have you tried making this with egg beaters?

The only thing I've tried to substitute eggbeaters in (other than omelets or
scrambled eggs) that I make is pancakes and the family said they could tell
the difference. They weren't as fluffy as they usually are. I've made them a
few times that way anyway, cause I think they are still pretty darn good.

I love cooking with wine.
Sometimes I even put it in the food.

Note: I am not the OP.

Make pancake batter, add shredded zucchini. Cook as usual.
What's so hard? I'd say probably no maple syrup, huh?

who doesn't like the sound of zuke pancakes,
but would probably like the results.

I'd say ginger syrup might be good.

Cornmeal pancakes might have some good possibilities.

They sounded good on the page but tasted horrid on my tongue. I love
cornmeal, but not cornmeal pancakes.
My mother used to make corncakes from tinned creamed corn, flour, egg, milk,
salt, pepper, perhaps a bit of baking powder, and we loved them. They were
very eggy, not puffy and light, always fried in butter. I'd try that with
zucchini.

Do you remember the recipe? I make cornmeal pancakes which I like very much,
but I had to add a very important step: Soak the cornmeal in boiling-hot
milk for half an hour. That makes the grains of cornmeal soften and swell,
so the pancakes aren't gritty. If your recipe didn't include a step like
that, you might want to try making them again, adding that step into the
recipe.
