In my post Wednesday, I mentioned that I was going to make some zucchini bread, and I actually did AND… It was pretty good. It’s an old recipe I found 2006 from a blogger friend, Ask The Helpful Housewife, aka Leanne Roman. I don’t think she blogs much anymore but I did find the old post where she shared the recipe here.
I had some zucchini in the refrigerator that I needed to get used before it went bad and zucchini bread seemed perfect for the day. I did make a few tweaks. I had whole wheat flour and date sugar, so that’s what I used, trying to be a little bit healthy. Plus, I think since I made these changes, it needed more liquid, so I added a little more oil, another egg, and some water to make it more batter-like. It was still really DRY before I added it and even then it was still pretty thick.
It could a little more tweaking… Maybe half sugar, half date sugar… and I think I forgot the salt… (What???) But it’s still good. Not my best but good. Did I mention it’s been a while since I’ve done much baking? DD usually does it for me.
It was fun to get back into the kitchen to make a treat just because I could. I think I’ll make it a weekly event or maybe every other week, but it should be a regular event for me. It’s therapeutic to be back in the kitchen again. I’ll have to give the goodies away so that I don’t gain weight but what a lovely thing to do for my friends and neighbors.
Hmm…. What to make next time… any ideas? Share your favorite recipes in the comments, please!
