It seems like it is finally spring here in the Boston area- at least in the next few days temperatures are lingering the upper 60’s (I sound like a weather girl!). Anyway, I decided to welcome the 80’s this weekend by making something delicious (Mind you, I did not know that it was going to turn out to be delicious). I made Fresh Pineapple-Zucchini bread, the basic recipe comes from here, but of course I had to experiment!
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon clove powder
1 cup grated zucchini
1 1/3 cup fresh pineapple, pureed
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup chopped pineapple
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In another bowl, mix oil, eggs, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Blend in pineapple and zucchini. Stir flour mixture into zucchini mixture. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
Bake at 350F for 1 hour. Cool and enjoy.
I was worried that the pureed pineapple would make it too soggy or something but I tell you, it was super-moist and yum!!! Next time may be I can add some nuts too. But I think I will submit for BBD #19 hosted by CindyStar.
