|Everything Zucchini Season|
Everything season: The time of year (whenever it may be) when you realize EVERYTHING you make needs to have eggs, or milk, or zucchini, or tomatoes, or green beans in it.
Because you just have (insert current item here) coming out your ears?
There are lots of "everything" seasons on the farm, but summer is probably best known as 'everything zucchini season' so here's our favorite Zucchini Bread Recipe (and it's good for you too)
3 cups shredded Zucchini
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
Mix these together in a large bowl and let sit while you beat together:
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup yogurt
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tsp. vanilla
Add to zucchini mixture stir together then add:
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp Baking soda
3 tsp. Baking powder
3 tsp. cinnamon
add 1/2 cup raisins and/or
1/2 cup chopped nuts to batter
sprinkle top with cinnamon sugar before baking
Stir until all dry is incorporated.
Bake in either a greased 10" tube pan OR 3 loaf pans.
For 55-65 minutes in a 350* oven. check every five minutes after 55 minutes by sticking a knife in the center, done when it comes out clean. Cool five minutes in pan, remove from pan and finish cooling.
You can frost this with your favorite frosting, for more of a dessert bread. Or leave plain and grill with a little butter for a good-for-you breakfast or snack!
