DIRECTIONS

  • place grated zucchini in colander and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. mix well and let sit at least 10 minutes. squeeze out excess water.
  • grease a normal size loaf pan, or two small loaf pans. preheat oven to 350 f.
  • combine both flours, 1/2 teaspoon salt, baking powder, baking soda, turbinado (or sugar), cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
  • in a separate bowl, combine the zucchini (be sure it has most of the water squeezed out), buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and butter. i find it is easiest to add the butter to the zucchini, mix it, and then add the rest. otherwise i accidently cook my eggs with the hot butter.
  • add the zucchini mix to the dry ingredients. mix well. add the nuts and currants. mix well.
  • pour into bread pan(s) and bake about one hour. i usually have to add another fifteen minutes if it is all in one pan, because the bottom is still so gooey.
