Looking for a new quick bread! I normally make banana bread because I already have “brown” bananas and don’t ever remember to get zucchini. BUT, since zucchini is super cheap right now (and my farmer’s market has a new “half priced” section for the produce that is ripe or overripe!!!) I decided to take advantage and make a little zucchini mix for the freezer! I used 4 zucchinis (total cost $2.25) and got 6 “bread” size portions…frozen into individual bags and then into freezer bags!
3 cups flour
1 1/4 c sugar
1 t each powder, soda, salt
1 c nuts (I omitted this!)
2 t vanilla
2 cup shredded zucchini
1/2 15 oz can crushed pineapple (I ran mine through the mini food processer)
1. Preheat oven 325. Spray 2 loaf pans. Mix ingredients well in bowl and scrape every last bit of dough into the pans!
2. Bake for 50-60 minutes, until knife comes out clean. Cool loaves on cooling rack and ENJOY!
I’m not doing a cost breakdown for these loaves since they are not a dinner, but I imagine they’d be about $3 each! I just wanted to share what we are enjoying lately!
