Hello food fans, time for another gem from our North Dakota think tank. Where would we be without them? Today's recipe has some surprises; I certainly did not think pineapple was a part of zucchini bread, but it certainly all seems to work. So roll up your sleeves and dig into:
Muriel's Majestic Zucchini Bread
3 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup pecans
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups shredded zucchini
1 8 oz. can crushed pineapple (drained)
Combine first 5 ingredients, set aside. Beat eggs lightly in large mixing
bowl. Add sugar, oil and vanilla; beat to creamy. Stir in zucchini and
pineapple. Add dry ingredients, stirring only until dry ingredients are
moistened. Spoon batter into two well greased and flowered 8" x 4" x 3"
loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until done. Cool 10 minutes
in pans, turn over on rack and cool completely.
That's another point for the North Dakotans, all you Minnesotans! Where is your regional pride? Maybe a plea to your competitive spirit will work? Anyway, thanks Muriel, your recipe was outstanding!
