Bread Machine: Zucchini Bread

Zucchini BreadI love a good bread recipe.  One that also has veggies, fruit, and seeds, well then I’m in heaven.  Here is one of my favorite zucchini bread recipes for the bread machine.

Ingredients

  • 1/2c pumpkin purée (you could also use canola or vegetable oil, but pumpkin just ups the healthy factor of the recipe)
  • 1 and 1/8c shredded zucchini
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2c brown sugar
  • 1/3c granulated sugar
  • 2 and 1/4c all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/4tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 and 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2c  raisins
  • 1/4c chopped dates
  • 1/4c sunflower seeds
  • 1/4c pumpkin seeds

Directions

  1. Place ingredients into the bread machine in the order listed.
  2. Set bread machine to quick bread or cake cycle.  Start bread machine.
  3. Scrape the sides of the bread machine pan a few minutes after mixing begins to make sure batter is fully mixed.
  4. The batter will resemble cake batter.  If it seems too thick, add water 1tbs at a time.  If it seems too thin or runny, add flour 1tbs at a time.
  5. Let bread machine run the full cycle.
  6. When baking cycle is complete remove bread from the machine and cool on a wire rack.

Store bread in plastic wrap or a zip-top plastic bag.  This bread is great by itself and makes decadent french toast if you have leftovers.
