Blue Ribbon Zucchini Nut Bread

Blue Ribbon Zucchini Nut Bread created by Bonnie G 2

This is the best Zucchini Nut Bread I have ever had and the only one I will make. It's from "Country Fair Cookbook" All recipes in this book are Blue Ribbon winners from fairs around America prior to it's publication in 1975. Wrap and refrigerate overnight to allow the flavor to mellow. I have also made this as muffins. Just lower the temperature. Now that I live in Australia I make this using the Aussie measuring cups and spoons and it turns out fine. I've also made it with half carrot and half zucchini. And other times I've used half wholewheat flour and half plain, just for a change and it works well too. My husband loves it and says it's more like a cake then a bread since it's so moist.

    Can you use self rising flour for this recipe instead of the plain flour
  5. Gail Bockay Holcomb
    We used 1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar and 1/2 cup light brown sugar instead of 2 cups granulated sugar. Less sweet than all white sugar.
