Simple Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread

a post with an actual recipe in it!

it's been a while, hasn't it?

sorry about that. life has been crazy busy lately.

i've been happily posting away about trips to the Tillamook Cheese Factory, Cape Meares, Beer Festivals and the like, but it's been a while since oh, i don't know, i've blogged about food.

that being said, i wish it was more creative than what i've got in store for you, but baby steps right?

we get a weekly basket of organic produce from a local farm here in Portland and we love it!

however, it has been overflowing with zucchini.

you name a recipe, i've probably put zucchini in it.

so i had to whip up a batch of zucchini bread, because what else do you make (besides zucchini lasagna, and yes i did that) with zucchini than zucchini bread!

this is a super simple recipe that's so good by itself that you really don't need to add anything to it.

some people like to dress up their zucchini bread with nuts or berries or chocolate chips, but this zucchini bread is a party all by itself and it doesn't need any help at all.

so if your garden is overflowing with zucchini, here's a quick and easy recipe to help you cope.

happy wednesday folks! 

Simple Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread
2 eggs
1 1/3 c sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
3 cups grated zucchini
2/3 c melted butter
2 tsp baking soda
Pinch salt
3 c whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp cinnamon

 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray two 5 by 9 inch loaf pans with cooking spray.

Mix together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in the grated zucchini and then the melted butter.

Add baking soda, salt and flour (in thirds) and mix well. Add in the cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir.

Pour the batter into your two loaf pans. Bake in the oven for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
