I love that we are back to the month of September. Good things tend to happen in September, so in order to celebrate a new month, I thought I'd post one of my latest favorite recipes...
3 1/2 Cups of All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 Teaspoons Salt
1 Teaspoon on Ground Nutmeg
2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
3 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Vegetable oil
1/3 Cup Water
2 Cups Grated Zucchini (yellow or green)
1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
1 Cup Chopped Pecans or walnuts (Optional)
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, nutmeg, baking soda, cinnamon and sugar. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, oil, water, zucchini, and lemon juice. Mix wet ingredients into dry and fold in nuts. Bake in loaf pans of your choice, sprayed with (a generous amount of) non-stick spray in the oven for 45 minutes or until tester comes out clean. (for mini loaves, I cook for 45 min. For regular sized loaves, I kept them in for 1 hour).
Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the finished product. We devour this yummy goodness as soon as we can get our hands on it.
Happy Happy September!
