~Zucchini Bread~

This summer, with all the wonderful zucchini that the Lord has blessed us with in our garden, I decided to try a new recipe...Zucchini Bread! At first I thought it was kind of different to make bread out of something green, :-) but I went ahead and made the bread and it was really good! :-) Here's the recipe!

Zucchini Bread

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 beaten egg
1 c. sugar
1 c. finely shredded, unpeeled zucchini (or for Apple Bread use 1 1/2 c. finely shredded, peeled apple instead of zucchini)
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, toasted

1. Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan; set aside. In a medium bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and nutmeg. Make a well in center of flour mixture; set aside.

2. In another medium bowl combine egg, sugar, zucchini, and oil. Add zucchini mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened ( batter should be lumpy) Fold in nuts. Spoon batter into prepared pan.

3. Bake in a 350* oven for 50-55 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pan. Cool completely on a wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing.

Have a very blessed day!
