It's that time of the summer- anybody have any good Zucchini Recipes?
The Very BEST Zucchini bread.
Or as Harriet called it when she was three, "bikini bread". (Except you wouldn't want too eat much of this if you had any plans for a bikini, it's loaded with butter and sugar. Fortunately, I have no such plans!)
1 C. Butter
1 3/4 c. sugar.
(yeah, I told you it was loaded. That's why it's good.)
Mix your dry ingredients:
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups shredded, drained zucchini or yellow squash
(the key to a bread that is not soggy is to wring some of the moisture out. place your shredded squash or zucchini in a clean dish cloth, or cheese cloth. Wrap it up in a ball and squeeze a lot of the water out. Don't wring the daylights out of it, you also don't want it too dry.)
Mix all together till combined, don't over mix.
Grease and flour two bread pans. Bake 1 hr. @ 350º.
Let it cool 10 min. before turning out of pans. Smells heavenly...
