Hello readers! I’m sure many of you can relate to this when I say I’ve spent a lot of my time watching endless YouTube videos. I watch a lot of different content, all from booktubers, to planner girls, and my favorite are Alisha Marie and MissRemiAshten. Since this quarantine situation, many of us are left with a lot of time on our hands. One thing that I’ve seen plenty of is this new trend of baking banana bread.
I’m not that big a fan of banana bread and I don’t know why because I love bananas. However, I am a huge lover of zucchini bread and I figured why not share that with you? This recipe came from my mother-in-law, literally was hand-written when she gave it to me so I am in no way claiming this as my own. It may not be the healthiest version (I mean 3 cups of sugar?!), but it tastes so freaking good!
What You’ll Need
- 2 loaf pans
- large mixing bowl
- hand mixer
- 3 eggs (well beaten)
- 1 cup oil
- 3 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 3 cups granulated sugar
- 2 cups unpeeled, grated zucchini
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 3 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup chopped nuts
Combine eggs, oil, and vanilla together in large bowl. My mother-in-law’s instructions don’t say to mix at this point, however I do.
Add in dry ingredients. Mix. Your mixture will be almost crumbly at this point.
Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Feel free to leave out the nuts, especially when staying conscious of nut allergies.
Spray loaf pans with cooking spray and lightly coat with flour, shaking out any excess.
Pour mixture into the two loaf pans and place in oven for 1 hour at 350 Degrees F.
*Be sure to let cool before serving
And that’s all there is to it! So simple with minimal mess to clean up, which I love. I haven’t done a calorie count on this recipe as I am planning on doing a low calorie version by swapping out some of the ingredients I use. But I want to test that out first to make sure it’s going to be good.
Let me know if you try this recipe and what you thought of it. Once again I want to thank you for reading, and remember to send love and prayers to those on the front-lines battling Covid-19.
