When looking for obscure holidays, we stumbled across National Zucchini Bread day! Zucchini bread is delicious breakfast food, and I remember working at a coffee shop when I was a teenager that has a serious zucchini bread cult-following. I decided to whip up some of my own for this holiday. I like to add chocolate chips or walnuts for extra texture, but that’s up to you!
1 ½ cups of flour
½ teaspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of baking soda
½ teaspoon of baking powder
½ cup of oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 large zucchinis, shredded.
Heat up your oven to 400 degrees and grease a square baking pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda and powder.
In a second bowl, mix the oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla.
Mix both bowls together and add the zucchini.
Pour the batter into the greased pan and cook for about 45 minutes, until the center of the bread is cooked through.
