Moist and delicious zucchini bread - don't tell anyone that it has a healthy veggie in it!
Pick zucchini fresh from your garden. Grate the zucchini. You can get about 1 cup of grated zucchini for each medium size squash.
Reconstitute the crystallized eggs according to package directions.
Cream the sugar, eggs, and oil.
Add the zucchini and vanilla and mix well.
Sift the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and baking powder together.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix with the paddle attachment on the stand mixer.
Pour the batter into greased and floured 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. My mother bakes them for 1 hour at a lower altitude.
Baste the top of the loaves with butter and sprinkle with sugar.
It is so moist and delicious!
Crystallized Eggs: Once opened, the crystallized eggs have a shelf life of one month. I repackage them in a freezer bag, label with directions to reconstitute and store in the freezer. If the electricity goes out, I can make scrambled eggs and easily use up the can in a month's time.
Flour: Flour can be stored in 5 gallon food-grade buckets with resealable lids. Layer the flour with bay leaves to keep the weevils away. Grains will keep for at least a year using this method.
Canola Oil: Canola oil will last a year in the original store container on your pantry shelf. Make sure to check the "best by" date since you don't know how long it has been sitting on the store shelves.
Sugar: Sugar has a 2 year shelf life on your pantry shelf.
Vanilla: I just purchased a new bottle of vanilla and the "best by" date states that it is good for close to 4 years.
Baking Soda: Baking soda has a shelf life of 2 years. Check the "best by" date on the container.
Salt: Table salt has a shelf life of 5 years.
Baking Powder: Baking powder has a shelf life of 1 year. Check the "best by" date on the container.
Cinnamon: Ground cinnamon has a shelf-life of 1 year. It does not go bad, but loses some of its flavor after a year.
