Yes, it’s a veggie. But like the carrot can be incorporated into something sweet or savory.
It’s one of those things that makes a great spice cake, or spice bread, which is what Zucchini bread is if you combine the right ingredients.
Okay, Peel your Zucchini, Cut the ends off. Grate your Zucchini on a cheese grater on the small side.(not the mini, or large)
Combine these two ingredients. 1 and 1/3 cups of sugar and two eggs.
Add in the grated Zucchini.
Add 2/3 cup melted butter. (not hot), mix to combine
Add 2 tsp. Baking soda into the mixture.
Add 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp Nutmeg
Add 3 cups of flour a little bit at a time, The batter will be lumpy.
Pour into greased loaf pans. Bake in a preheated oven 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
(Large loaf pans will take longer, my mini loafs only took about 20-25 minutes)
You can add nuts, berries, raisins to the mixture if you like.
