Zucchini Bread


Are you ready for another zucchini bread recipe?  A friend of mine gave me a huge zucchini from her yard . We can't have a garden where we live because of so many trees and shade.  Trees can be good thing, and they can be hindrance to having a garden.  We have many black walnut trees which drop the nuts. For those of you who have never seen black walnuts in the fall here they are.













The top pic is the way the black walnuts look when they fall off the tree in late August or early September with a heavy green casing.  The bottom picture is the way they look when  the green casing comes off to reveal the black walnut shell..  As you can see on the bottom picture, there is a sticky black substance covering the inner nut shell, which were stain your hands with a dark brown color., and is very difficult to remove!  The black walnut shell is very difficult to remove.  You need a bench vise to open them, and it's a very messy proposition.   Two years ago, there was such a bountiful crop of black walnuts, we were picking up a garbage can full of nuts a day from our yard.  What a mess.  If any of you are interested in the black walnuts, send me a message.  Now back to the Zucchini Bread...

 I told her that I'd make zucchini bread for her.  She works full time and has 2 year old twins, so she certainly doesn't have time  to bake!. I made one loaf for her and one loaf for her mother-in law, who watches the twins while my friend works.  Ever since I started blogging, we have had so many baked treats around the house, I was glad to bake something and give all of it away. I modified The Mom Chef's recipe for Zucchini Bread.  I didn't add the walnuts, pecans, or raisins, because the twins aren't eating nuts or raisins, in case they had a piece. This recipe yields a very moist, yummy bread. Thanks, Christiane for the recipe.

  1. You're very welcome Becky! Your bread looks delicious. We had two big black walnut trees in our back yard at the house we lived in before this and I do not miss the mess! When we wanted to hull some, we just put them in the driveway and drove over them. It was a gravel drive though. :)

  2. We have an asphalt driveway, so driving over them wouldn't work. Another problem with the walnuts is that our dog, Bailey, a Cockapoo, thinks that the walnuts are balls to play with. That's another story.
