Zucchini breadZucchini looks like cucumbers, but it's got a great flavor all on its own. 

To prepare your zucchini, just wash the outside well (usually no need to peel it) and remove any bigger seeds. Then just grate it with a cheese grater, and you're ready to try these delicious zucchini recipes!

Zucchini Bread

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

Then add:

  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup raisins or chocolate chips for those who don’t like the raisins (semi-sweet or milk)
