Wholesome and Vibrant Zucchini Turmeric Bread: A Flavorful Twist on Traditional Recipe!

0  comments

Hello, dear food enthusiasts! Today I have a secret to spill – a recipe that is as brilliant in taste as it is in color. It’s a personal favourite, and absolute delight that surprisingly goes by the name of “Zucchini Turmeric Bread”. It’s a comfort food, straight from my grandmother’s kitchen, which is jam-packed with a little magic from Mother Earth and a dash of color from the golden spice itself – Turmeric.

Ingredients List

To recreate this masterpiece you’ll need:

  • 2 cups of grated Zucchini (remember an apple a day, or in this case, a zucchini, keeps the doctor away)
  • 3 medium-sized organic free range eggs
  • 1 cup of olive oil
  • 2 cups of sugar (feel free to use a healthier alternative like coconut or stevia)
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract for that extra kick of sweetness
  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of salt (remember, it’s the salt of life that enhances flavor)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder (the golden miracle spice that gives life to our bread)

Instructions

1. Begin by preheating the oven to 325 degrees and lining two 8×4-inch loaf pans with parchment paper.
2. Shred the zucchini. Squeeze out excess water but make sure to leave some moisture behind.
3. Whisk eggs in a bowl. Introduce the olive oil, sugar, and vanilla extract, blending until the mixture is all smiles and happiness.
4. Mix the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and golden turmeric in a separate bowl.
5. Time to say some magic words as all the ingredients meet. Visualize an incoming tsunami while stirring in the shredded zucchini.
6. Distribute the mixture equally into the previously prepared loaf pans and let it bake for 60-75 minutes (or less if you have a super oven) until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
