This is our first year and we are having a great time with our raised bed garden! Our summer squash has been very prolific so far. We’ve dried it and put it in lasagna, made chips, and somewhat followed a zuchinni bread recipe from Mr. Lynx’s grandma’s 2008 Grange cookbook (not her recipe).
2 c. sugar
1 c. oil
3 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 ts baking soda
1 1/2 ts salt
1 ts cinnamon
3/4 ts baking powder (somehow I didn’t have this and sprinkled like 1/8 ts more baking soda instead)
2 c. zuchinni style summer squash (grated and drained, I eyedballed.)
1 ts vanilla
Bake at 350 for about an hour. Makes 2 loaves.
As these older recipe goes, it wasn’t specific as to the order of ingredients, so I just went from the top down.
We really enjoyed it, and it was a hit at a weekend family BBQ as well.
I currently have more squash draining and more cut and drying for chips!
It is! I omitted nuts and raisins from our version, which were the changes I made.
(Linda -2023 is a use the good stuff year! :us:)
If there is a good reason to grow zucchini, it is this: the zucchini bread is one of my favorites…no way it can be messed up! I love the raisins and nuts, but not everyone does…your plants sure look healthy and looks like you can freeze some loaves for winter!
