Zucchini Recipes



Found another recipe I need to try...Zucchini Cookies!  I have to use up all the zucchini I was given.  We will see how they turn out.  My mom found this recipe with version of Zucchini Bread that she makes, however I used a different version I found in her stash of old recipes.  By the way I typed all these old recipes back when I was younger on a typewriter.  Remember those things?  When I started typing them, it was on a children's typewriter.  Then later on my parents bought an electric typewriter.  It had a correction tape to fix all your mistakes so you didn't have to make a mess with the liquid white-out.  We thought that was advanced at the time.  ahhh..nostalgia!

Anyway, here is the recipe that I used for my zucchini cupcakes the other day:

Zucchini Nut Bread

4 eggs
3/4 tsp. baking powder
2 cups sugar
2 cups zucchini (shredded)
1 cup oil
1 cup chopped nuts
3 1/2 cups flour
1 cup raisins
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda

Mix the eggs.  Add the sugar and oil.  Mix well.  Mix together the dry ingredients.  Add the egg mixture and the zucchini a little at a time to the dry ingredients.  Add the raisins and the nuts.  Bake at 350 degrees for 55 min.

Of course, I was in too much of a rush to make the cupcakes, that I forgot to check the pantry for all the ingredients.  I only had one cup of sugar, so I substituted 3/4 cup of my dad's maple syrup in place of the second cup of sugar.  I also didn't have nuts or raisins, so I just left them out.  Since I was making cupcakes instead of a bread I decreased the baking time to about 20 min.  All in all it worked out well.  They came out tasty.
