Sometimes your friends bring you food, sometimes its good, other times not so much… When my friend Liza brought her zucchini bread into work, this was a case were it was excellent! I had to have the recipe, and with a few minor tweaks I give it to you… The Ultimate Zucchini Bread after the jump.
3 cups AP Flour (I like King Arthur unbleached)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon (fresh ground if possible)
2 cups sugar
1 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven for 350F. Combine flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Then add oil, eggs, sour cream, and vanilla, mix well. Add zucchini and nuts last. Bake in 2 greased 9×5 pans for 1 hour 20 min. You can make this in mini pans or muffin tins if you like, you just have to adjust the cooking time accordingly. Serve with whipped honey and butter… YUM!
