Recipe 24: PINEAPPLE ZUCCHINI BREAD (breads)
PINEAPPLE. It makes it moist and delicious but gives it only a hint of sweetness. This is REALLY a fantastic bread. This is a GREAT recipe if you grow zucchini in your garden like I do and have a bumper crop! In fact, I made a few loaves the other day and they were SNARFED down in record time.
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1 cup crushed pineaplle, drained off well
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups shredded zucchini(kind of squeeze out excess moisture)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts(optional)
Beat eggs and add the sugar, oil, pineapple and vanilla. Stir well.
Gradually add in remaining ingredients, stirring until all incorporated.
Grease 2 large or 3 small loaf pans and pour batter, dividing evenly between the pans.
bake at 350 for 45 - 60 minutes.
Test with a knife to make sure it is cooked through.
can be frozen and saved for later as well.
