|Blue Ribbon Winning Zucchini Bread|
This time of year we always have zucchini producing like mad out of our garden and although we love it, trying to fit it into everything from spaghetti to macaroni and cheese sometimes becomes a struggle…especially with the kids. My wife has found a way to sweeten it up though with this simple bread recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat together eggs, sugars, oil and maple flavoring until foamy and thick: stir in zucchini. Stir in baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, whole wheat flour and flour; mix well. Add nuts and chocolate chips. Spoon batter into two 9x5x3 inch loaf pans coated with cooking spray and flour. Sprinkle tops with sesame seeds. Bake 40 minutes to one hour, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool ten minutes before removing from pans.
