A tasty way to use up the garden’s overabundance or older zucchini.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
1. Begin by macerating the currants in the dark rum. By the time everything else is mixed, they will have plumped up enough to use. Grease a 9.25″ x 5.25″ bread pan and set aside.
2. Grate zucchini into a large bowl. Add vegetable oil, sugars, and beaten egg and mix until well combined.
3. Put flour, baking powder, and baking soda into a sifter, then sift into the zucchini mix. Add sea salt, cinnamon, and ginger then gently stir until just combined. DO NOT OVER-MIX.
4. Drain currants, then add the currants and pecans to the zucchini mix and stir a couple times until it is just mixed.
5. Pour into a greased bread pan, place on a baking sheet and put in the oven. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until a tester toothpick comes out clean. (If the top starts to brown too much, place a sheet of aluminum foil over the loaf to protect it.)
6. Remove from the oven and allow bread to cool a bit.
To make the cream cheese/sour cream frosting, whisk all frosting ingredients until well combined and smooth. Frost at will.
This Low Fat Banana, Date & Nut Bread may be low on fat, but it’s not low on flavor! It’s perfect to enjoy with that morning tea or coffee. This recipe makes two loaves, one to eat now, and one to put in the freezer to enjoy later.
Better than Starbucks makes!
