I love the flavor of this bread. It is a great dish to give as a gift or to serve with tea. Somehow because it has zucchini I think it is good for you...there's plenty of sugar that should knock that thought out of my head....whatever!!!!...still love it!!!
1 cup canola oil
1 tbl unsalted butter
3-1/4 cups flour
3 cups sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup water
2 cups grated zucchini
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
1-1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp chopped cloves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a bowl combine dry ingredients: flour, salt, nutmeg, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and sugar. In another bowl combine wet ingredients: oil, water, butter, eggs, zucchini, vanilla and lemon juice. Mix wet into dry ingredients then add nuts. Spray two loaf pans with a non-stick spray or grease with butter. Bake for an hour or until a knife goes through it cleanly. If you are making mini loaves, they would bake only about 45 minutes.
For best flavor wrap the bread when cool and let sit overnight.
