I love baking quick breads. This recipe comes together quickly with ingredients you probably have in your pantry.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 medium size zucchini, you will want 1 cup grated
1 8 ounce can crushed pineapple, drained well
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray loaf pan with nonstick spray.
Whisk together dry ingredients. Beat eggs and vanilla and add them to flour mixture. Add grated zucchini (I used a box grater but good processor will do). Incorporate pineapple, raisins and pecans. Pour into loaf pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Cool in pan about 15 minutes and place on a plate/tray. Slice and serve.
It’s absolutely delicious warm from the oven, just as tasty cool. Enjoy! This recipe can easily be doubled. Make this recipe and put one loaf in the freezer for later.
