Moist Zucchini Bread Recipe
1 c. oil ( I like to use 1 c. applesauce)
2 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 c. grated zucchini
3 c. flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
Directions: Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Do not over bake!!
1. Grate 2 cups of zucchini first. I use a regular cheese grater and use the smallest form to grate so the zucchini is grated up as fine as possible. The juiciest the zucchini, the better. This is what makes the zucchini bread so moist. The zucchini usually works the best, fresh out of the garden, the moment it is picked.
2. In a medium bowl mix the eggs, sugar, vanilla, oil and zucchini together. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients together. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients into the egg, sugar, vanilla, oil and zucchini mixture. Use a mixer to mix everything together evenly.
3. Spray PAM into 2 bread pans. Pour the zucchini bread mixture into the two bread pans. Put the bread pans into the oven and bake for one hour.
4. Use a toothpick to see if the bread is done after 1 hour. Stick the toothpick into the bread and pull out the toothpick. The toothpick should come out clean with no batter on the toothpick when the bread is done.
