Once again, the year is flying by! I can’t believe it’s almost August and summer is coming to an end! So we need to live up the next few weeks. The weather in Chicago has been amazing lately so plants, flowers and gardens are looking great. A friend of mine gave me some zucchini from her garden so of course I made a zucchini bread πŸ™‚ This recipe is so easy and delicious, one that will please everyone.

So let’s go start those oven and bake!

Note:Β Grate the zucchini on the large side of a box grater.

What you will need:

Loaf pan, greased

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups grated zucchini (do not drain liquid!)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside. In another large bowl, whisk together the zucchini, both sugars, applesauce, oil, eggs and vanilla. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients until just combined.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 40-50 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before inverting to a wire rack to cool completely.

Store covered in the refrigerator. This bread is best served chilled. Enjoy!
