Zucchini Bread

After receiving 3 GIANT Zucchini’s from my mom’s garden this fall- I really wanted to make some zucchini bread.  My first attempt to make Zucchini Bread wasn’t the best in the world.  The bread was a bit bitter and sank in the middle.  It wasn’t horrible 🙂  But to be fair- I will post it here- and hopefully you and I will learn from my mistakes…

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups zucchini, grated
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 egg replacers (I used a baking powder replacer- lesson learned.  Next time- I’m thinking mushed banana instead)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the zucchini with the sugar, egg replacer, vegetable oil, and vanilla.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Grease 2 (9x5x3″) pans with cooking spray and put 1/2 the mixture in each pan.
  3. Bake for approximately 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean.

Knock Off Garlic Bread

Gee- I love Garlic Bread.  Or Bread.  Or Garlic… 🙂

Here is a vegan (and healthier AND SIMPLE) version of Garlic Bread

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup EVOO
  • minced Garlic to taste (I used the pre-minced squeeze bottle found at HyVee)
  • dried oregano
  • french banquette, hoagie roll, etc- check the ingredients to make sure it’s vegan

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut the bun in sections (about an inch thick) and lay on a cookie sheet
  3. Put the garlic and olive oil in a small dish and heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until fragrant. Use a spoon to evenly distribute the olive oil and garlic over each slice of bread. Sprinkle each piece with dried oregano. Place on a baking sheet and put in the oven for 10 minutes, until the bread starts to dry.
  4. EAT!
