ZUCCHINI BREAD

July 29, 2020

 

Ingredients
Butter, for the pan
1 ½ cups grated zucchini
⅔ cups light brown sugar
⅓ cup Arbequina Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
½ cup chopped walnuts

 

Instructions
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, use a rubber spatula to mix together the grated zucchini, sugar, Arbequina Olive Oil, yogurt, eggs and vanilla extract. Whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, lemon zest and spices in a separate bowl. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Fold in the walnuts if using. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 40 to 55 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking. The bread will be done when a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove the bread from the pan and cool on a rack completely before cutting and serving.
