Many years ago a customer shared this with us girls at my Mom’s craft store. One look at the ingredients and we knew we just had to try it- my family has been making it ever since!
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 Tablespoon maple flavoring*
- 2 cups shredded zucchini
- 2 1/2 cups flour, unsifted
- 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
Beat the eggs, then add oil, sugars, and maple flavoring combine until foamy. Stir in zucchini and all dry ingredients- mix just until combined. Stir in nuts.
Using Pam spray- coat 4 mini loaf pans, spoon in batter; sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 40- 45 minutes. Check with toothpick to see if you need additional time. If making 1 large loaf, follow instructions above and bake for 1 hour.
*My favorite Maple extract is Mapleine by Crescent (in a bright blue box) – I recently found it at WalMart.
