Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread
From: Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook (my favorite cookbook for daily cooking & baking)

1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp ground cinammon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 egg, beaten (I used egg substitute. Less fluffy & bit more dry but we got allergies, yo!)
1 cup sugar
1 cup finely shredded, unpeeled zucchini
1/4 cup cooking oil
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted (or raisins ;) )

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease the bottom and 12 inch up sides of an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan; set aside. In a medium bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg. Make a well in center of flour mixture; set aside.

In another medium bowl combine egg, sugar, shredded 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.

Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely on a wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing.

Claire, these look beautiful! Your family is blessed to have you. It always seems that you put heaps of love and thoughtfulness into what you make.
And Yay for zucchini bread! I've got my local, farm-fresh zucchini waiting to make its bread debut. Thanks for posting it :)
