It is an easy "bread" that is super moist and yummy! And, I have a weakness for nutmeg, so that makes it even yummier in my opinion!
|Mmmm... Zucchini Loaf with Chocolate Chips!|
Mix the dry ingredients in Bowl #1 first:
- 1 & 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup grated/shredded zucchini (you can leave the peel on when you grate it)
- 1/4 cup cooking oil
- 1 egg
- A splash (or two) of lemon juice (I sometimes taste the mix to make sure there is a hint of lemon flavor, but do this at your own risk / comfortable level since there is a raw egg in there.)
Okay, now add the dry flour mixture (Bowl #1) to the wet mixture (Bowl #2). Just stir until it is combined. Do not over mix.
Now, mix in something fun...
- 1/2 cup of one of the following: chopped walnuts, chopped pecans, or semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Cool the loaf in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
Then, remove the loaf from the pan (run a knife around the edge first), so it can cool on the loaf on the wire rack. Sprinkle the top with icing sugar. (You can also mix a bit of nutmeg or cinnamon into the icing sugar for even more yummy fun.)
The number of servings depends on how big you cut the slices... ;)
