National Zucchini Bread Day Recipe

April 25 is National Zucchini Bread Day. Why not celebrate by baking a loaf:



    2 cups sugar
    1 cup canola oil
    3 eggs
    3 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup baking cocoa
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    2 cups shredded peeled zucchini


    In a large bowl, beat the sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and baking powder; gradually beat into sugar mixture until blended. Stir in zucchini. Transfer to two 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray.
    Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).
