Mid-summer. A time of miserable heat and humidity, and vegetables ripe enough to pick from the garden. While our temperatures have been unusually mild, our garden has grown plenty of tomatoes and zucchini ready to pick. The challenge has been how to use all this extra produce.

Zucchini BreadEarlier this week, I made a fresh tomato sauce and turned a zucchini into pasta and on another night I made my cheesy zucchini rice. Despite that, I still have lots of zucchini (and tomatoes) left!

I plan on baking several loaves of zucchini bread over the next few days with the remaining zucchini. Growing up, I looked forward to eating my mom’s zucchini every summer. It was moist and delicious! Now, I make it every summer. I hope to teach my girls how to make it when they get older. 

Zucchini Bread
I prefer finely grated zucchini in my bread.

As the oven preheats to 325°, I whisk together 2 eggs, 1 cup vegetable oil, 2 cups sugar, and 2 cups finely grated zucchini*. 

Zucchini BreadThen, I add 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. After whisking that in, I slowly add 2 cups of flour as I stir. 

Zucchini BreadOnce everything is mixed together well, I add in 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup raisins. I pour the batter evenly into 2 greased and floured loaf pans. Zucchini BreadI bake the zucchini bread for an hour, checking if it is done with a toothpick or a cake tester in the center. 

*You can grate it to the consistency you like. I prefer finely for my bread.
