We thought it would be more fun to not only leave a zucchini (with a pair of googly eyes glued on) but also a loaf of homemade zucchini bread.
This recipe is my favorite and will make your whole house smell amazing as it bakes.
You’re going to wish it was National Leave a Zucchini on Your Neighbor’s Porch Day every day. :-)
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups zucchini, grated
1 T vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
Optional – 1/2 cup chopped nuts
1. Mix together the eggs, oil, sugar and zucchini. Add the vanilla.
2. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients (except the nuts, if you are using them).
3. Add to zucchini mixture.
4. Stir in nuts.
5. Pour batter into 2 lightly greased 8×4 loaf pans.
6. Bake at 325 degrees for about one hour.
Happy Zucchini Bread of America-ing! :-)
