Zuchinni Bread Yummized!


My fabulous neighbor Jack, gave me a bunch of Zuchinni's as he does every year, he is sooo sweet! I decided to make my regular Zuchinni Bread recipe, but do my usual and add in a bunch of extras!

I actually made one batch and poured half into a loaf pan, then added my "extras", stirred and poured into the 2nd loaf pan. That way you can have the best of both worlds. Both breads were delish!

3 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground nutmeg (fresh is best)
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup applesauce
4 eggs beaten
2 cups grated Zucchini (use a towel and squeeze excess liquid out)
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup chopped nut of your choice, I used Walnuts
2 tsp honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup water

EXTRAS: 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (or whatever chips you have), 1 cup of mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 2 loaf pans

In a large bowl combine flour, salt, nutmeg, baking soda, cinnamon and both sugars

In a separate bowl, combine oil, applesauce, eggs, water, zucchini, honey, vanilla and lemon juice

Mix wet ingredients into dry, and fold in nuts, split between your 2 loaf pans, or do as I did and place half into a loaf pan, add your extra's, stir and pour into your 2nd loaf pan

Bake for 1 hour or until your knife comes out clean

I'm ready to do some baking. It's finally cooling off enough here that I can turn on the oven. That sounds tasty.

YUMMIZED! Love that word, and what an appropriate word for this slice of yumminess! And what an interesting idea that you suggested mini marshmallows!

zucchinis simply belong in bread. or cake. forget savory creations, they need to be in baked goods every time!
