We at Garlic My Soul don’t find it difficult to eat our daily dose of veggies, however we understand that isn’t always the case. We’ve posted several yummy dishes on the blog over the years involving “secret vegetables” such as spaghetti squash and recently avocado cookies. Here is another recipe to add to your repertoire.
We started with this Orange Spice Zucchini Walnut bread recipe from Canadian Living. Be sure to use the cups measurements, as we began with the millimeter measurements, but 625ml of flour was WEIGH more than 2 ½ cups (pun intended!)
Mix the dry ingredients – flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt – together in a mixing bowl and set aside. Grate about two small unpeeled zucchinis with a cheese grater. Add the butter, milk, eggs, and orange rind. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. At this stage, we realized there was not quite enough liquid to incorporate all the flour, so we added the juice of the orange that had just been zested to add some flavor and solve the liquid issue.
We also forgot the walnuts at this stage… oops!
Divide the dough between two greased bread pans and cook at 350°F/180°C until a toothpick comes out clean.
Now hopefully you have an extra orange lying around to make the tasty glaze, but if you don’t, not to worry, this bread is delicious sans glaze (and walnuts!)
