It’s a zucchini apocalypse here at casa vassal.
If these things get much bigger I will have to find the machete and go to town in a whole lob off their heads and make some zombie bread kinda way. Only … I’m not too sure if zucchinis have heads. Sure, their flowers do, but we are waaaaay past containment here, and are into full blown zombie takeover.
er … I mean …
Gotta Run Zucchini Bread
In a large bowl, mix 3 cups shredded zucchini, 1 cup sugar, 2tbs molasses + oil to make 2/3 cups, 2 tsp vanilla, and four eggs.
Sift together 3 cups flour, 2tsp baking soda, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp all spice, 1/2 tsp baking power. Add this to the wet mixture and stir, stir stir.
Chop up a bunch (7? 10?) dates, add, stir some more.
Pour into two greased bread pans (or, you know, 4 mini pans, muffin tins, whatever – but adjust the baking time accordingly) and bake for 50-60 minutes in an oven preheated to 350.
Now, honestly, I never measure the zucchini and I find my bread takes a wee bit longer to cook, due to its moisture content.
But it’s well worth it.
