This recipe is super easy and great to do with kids. It also has the addition of one of my favorite things in the world: ginger root

Zucchini Bread


  • 3 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp grated ginger root (powdered is fine also if thats all you have If you go the powered route add it with the dry ingredients below. Ginger root is pretty readily available these days in the produce area of your grocery store with the other root vegetables.)

Sift together and stir into wet ingredients till well blended:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Optional:
  • 1 cup chopped nuts. (walnuts, cashews and pinenuts all work really well here)
  • 1 cup raisins. (For the juiciest, plumpest raisins in any recipe try soaking them in enough warm water to cover them for 10 -15 minutes)

When mix is evenly blended pour into greased loaf pan and cook one hour in an oven preheated at 350 degrees.

**this recipe freezes very well:)
