|Butter & Sugar|
Preheat your oven to 400* F.
2 C sugar
1 C oil - I used coconut since it was what I had on hand, but vegetable is better.
3 Large beaten eggs
1 t vanilla
1 t baking soda
1/4 t baking powder
1 t salt
1 t cinnamon
|Add dry ingredients|
1 C chopped nut (optional)
Cream sugar and oil. Add beaten eggs and vanilla and beat well.
Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl then combine with the sugar, oil and eggs.
|Mixed and ready for zucchini|
After all the dry ingredients are thoroughly combined you are ready to add your chopped zucchini. This will look a little softer if you use oil.
Add zucchini all at once and mix well until fully incorporated. At this point the batter will look more like cake batter at this point with oil. Unfortunately coconut oil makes for a stiffer dough.
|Add nuts if desired|
Add nuts if desired and mix well.
|Ready to go in the oven|
Place in 2 buttered loaf pans and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Slice and enjoy. I like mine with a little butter on it. Yummmm!
I tried a piece with a little butter and it tastes just as good, even thought it didn't mix up as fluidly.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have over the years. Bon appetit!
