Zucchini Bread

Per the request of some readers, I am going to start sharing more recipes. If you get sick of me and hate it, let me know. K?

Last week I decided to try my hand at baking. I usually never bake. It just always seems like it needs to be so exact. There is so much more room for creativity for me in cooking. But... we had a large zucchini that was going to go to waste. I was hungry. And well this happened.

not my photo, oops.


  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, nutmeg, baking soda, cinnamon and sugar. In a separate bowl, combine oil, eggs, water, zucchini and lemon juice. Mix wet ingredients into dry, add nuts and fold in. Bake in 2 standard loaf pans, sprayed with nonstick spray, for about 55 minutes.

This is a variation of Paula Deen's recipe and I realllllly enjoyed it. It restored my faith in baking. I ate it for 4 meals (yes FOUR) a day for the last week. ENJOY!
