Recipe: Zucchini Bread

Looking for a way to include more fruits and veggies into your family’s diet? Why not try this delicious recipe from Ann for Zucchini Bread? Her daughters gave it their stamp of approval!










Zucchini Bread
(Kinderhaus Cooks)

Ingredients:

3 cups flour
1 ½ cups sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. baking powder
2 cups zucchini, shredded
1 cup raisins
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
½ tsp. vanilla

Directions:

In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking powder, baking soda, zucchini, and raisins. In another bowl, beat eggs, oil, and vanilla. Pour over flour mixture and stir until moist.

Turn into a greased 9” x 13” pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until golden brown. You could make small loaves or muffins also. Sinply adjust your baking time. Freezes well.

This was a new recipe in which I tried to use a zucchini. It was very moist and had a nice cinnamon flavor to it. The raisins puffed up and were soft. I'd definitely make it again. The next time I make it, I may double the cinnamon and nutmeg perhaps…or use apple pie seasoning instead.

Both Sophia and Olivia liked it (Sophia as it was and Olivia prefers it without raisins and picked out each one to give to Sophia or me). Olivia noticed the green bits of zucchini, but when I told her there was no taste and it just made the bread very moist, then she was fine with eating it.

Thank you, Ann! Now for some more wholesome creations, head on over to Ann’s Etsy shop, Harvest Moon by Hand. In Ann’s words: Harvest Moon by Hand helps people enhance their homes by offering beautiful natural products which are calming and uplifting; and inspire creative and imaginative play in children.

In the summer when our garden is full of zucchinis, I like to make chocolate zucchini cake a lot. You can't tell it's not regular chocolate cake. Recipes like this are such a good way to sneak some veggies into picky children!
