For the Zucchini haters out there, this is such a flavorful bread. Earthy and moist. Great as a snack with a cup of tea or even better for breakfast. A great way to start a day
Doris Moret ( my Mom)
3/4 cup oil
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
3 Tablespoons Maple extract
2 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 cup wheat germ
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/2 cups white flour
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or spray a large 9x5 loaf pan.
In a bowl of a stand mixer, add eggs, oil, both sugars and maple extract. Beat until foamy and thick.
Stir in zucchini, wheat germ, flour, baking soda and baking powder. Add nut if you want. Stir until all incorporated. Pour into loaf pan. Place in oven for one hour. Test with a toothpick for doneness. Remove from oven and cool. Once cool, invert and place on a plate. Cut and start eating. This bread also cuts very nice. Perfect for a luncheon or shower.
Mostly I just think of my Mom and smile.
She always liked easy recipes that come together quickly and taste great.
