Spiced Summer Squash Bread
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 eggs, room temp.
- 3/4 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil (or replace it with applesauce for a healthier version)
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups yellow summer squash, shredded
- Chopped walnuts, for topping (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees. Butter and flour a loaf pan.
Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.
In a separate bowl, beat together eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla. Next gently stir in the yellow squash (watch out, it may splash out of your mixer at this point). Then mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and combine until mixed.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan, sprinkle with chopped walnuts, and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a test stick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 15 mins, then carefully remove the loaf from the pan and continue to let cool. Slice and serve!
