Well, not literally went to town. I had everything we needed.
I took a loaf to work and a loaf to my parent's house. The loaf at work was gone by 10am. I had to call my mom and tell her to make sure she saved some for Colleen to try. So good! I was even told that someday I'll make somebody very happy with my culinary skills.
I found the recipe at tastykitchen.com.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
3 whole eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 tbs vanilla
2 cups loosely packed grated zucchini (do not peel)
2 cups flour
1 tbs cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cups chopped walnuts
- Beat eggs. Add sugar, vegetable oil, and vanilla. Beat mixture until thick and frothy.
- Stir in zucchini (do not peel it). Sift and add the rest of the ingredients.
- Pour mixture into two floured loaf pans. Bake at 350F for 1 hour. Insert cake tester in center until it comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then remove and place on rack until it completely cools.
*I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. Totally good, you can't tell there was a partial substitute.
