OLIVE OIL ZUCCHINI BREAD

I put the above words into the computer box and a bunch of recipes later, this is what I ended up with.
Divine.





2 cups grated zucchini
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
3 large eggs
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
crushed walnuts
I mixed dry and gave em a nice sift. I mixed wet, added nuts and incorporated to the dry ingredients in three additions. Mix well.
Bake at 350 for an hour checking halfway. I baked mine in a deep 10 wedding cake, cake pan which is a fussy pan and it took longer, plus my oven suffers a temperature identity crises. The olive oil addition to this old stand by is really magnificent.
There was some mention of a sugar glaze but really, the bread needs no adornment.
