Zucchini Bread (Mattie’s Recipe)

Camp is over and it was a BLAST! Some of the cutest kids in the world were here! I am going to miss them and the funny stories they tell us. I am also going to miss the staff and volunteers but, one thing I will not miss is Mattie’s Zucchini Bread! She gave me her recipe! Mattie was a volunteer cook for many, many years. We all love her dearly! She likes to spend time with her grand kids now but, sometimes she comes to visits and brings us her famous Zucchini Bread. Her book has been used so much it has lost it’s cover so I can’t give you the name of it. Actually, over half the book is missing but, the Zucchini Bread Recipe is there so I am very happy!

Zucchini Bread Recipe www.thebearfootbaker.comI am going to have a hard time finishing this post! My house smells wonderful after baking and the bread is inches away as I type! I love ya more than my zucchini bread so I will try very hard to finish for you! ;)

I don’t know who Lucille Strevel is or where she got this recipe but, I wish I could thank her! This zucchini bread is so good the recipe has to be shared!

Zucchini Bread (Mattie’s Recipe)

Ingredients

Zucchini Bread:
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 1/2 c. chopped, walnuts or pecans
3 eggs
2 c sugar
1 c vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. coarsely shredded zucchini
1-8 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
Zucchini Bread Icing
3 Tbls Butter
1 1/2 cups of light or dark brown sugar
1/4 cup water
4 cups powdered sugar (I wanted my icing on the thin side so I only used 2 cups of powdered sugar. Add it slowly until you get the consistency you want.)
1 tsp vanilla

Directions

Zucchini Bread
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine flour, soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nuts. Set aside.
Beat eggs lightly.
Next, add sugar, oil and vanilla.
Beat until creamy.
Stir in zucchini and pineapples.
Add the dry ingredients, only stirring until moistened.
Stir into 2 well-greased and floured loaf pans.
Depending on how deep your loaf pan is will determine your cooking time. I baked mine for 40 minutes but the recipe called for 1 hour. It is done when a toothpick is inserted into the center and comes out clean.
Zucchini Bread Icing
Bring 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, 3 Tbls. butter and 1/4 cup water or milk to a boil.
Next, remove from heat and add powdered sugar and the vanilla and pour over your bread.

Combine flour, soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nuts. Set aside.

Beat eggs lightly.

Next, add sugar, oil and vanilla.

Beat until creamy.

Stir in zucchini and pineapples. The pineapple is under the zucchini I promise! I would never forget he pineapples because it is what makes the bread super yummy!

Add the dry ingredients, only stirring until moistened.

Pour into 2 well-greased and floured loaf pans. I stirred mine a little more until the flour lumps disappeared.

Now for the icing!

Bring 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, 3 Tbls. butter and 1/4 cup water or milk to a boil. You can use light or dark brown sugar. Either one works according to Mattie.

It will look like this! Next, remove from heat and add powdered sugar and the vanilla. I only used 2 cups of powdered sugar for my icing. I wanted it pour it over my bread instead of spreading it like icing. I didn’t take a photo of the added sugar and vanilla because, I was working really fast to get the drippy icing effect for my photo. It sets up very quick!

Zucchini-Bread-Recipe-with-www.thebearfootbaker.comIf you let the cake is cool and add warm icing, then the icing will get hard and be difficult to spread. I will always make mine thin and pour it on. I think it looks prettier also.

I hope you give this recipe a try because it is SO GOOD! Thanks Mattie and Lucille Strevel! I am going to go make some coffee, eat a piece of zucchini bread and take a nap! Life is so good!!!!!

Happy Creating,

Signature
