Description

A tasty way to use up the garden’s overabundance or older zucchini.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Grated Zucchini
  • ⅔ cups Vegetable Oil
  • ½ cups Granular Sugar
  • ½ cups Golden Brown Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs, Beaten
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¾ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ¾ teaspoons Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon, Preferrable Freshly Grated
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Ginger, Grated
  • ¾ cups Dried Currants (or Other Dried Fruit Of Choice)
  • ½ cups Dark Rum Or Kahlua (enough To Cover Currants)
  • ¾ cups Pecans, Chopped (or Other Nut Of Choice)
  • _____
  • FOR FROSTING:
  • 4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese (Room Temperature)
  • 4 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • 4 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Dark Rum

Preparation

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.

I just made the icing (for a whole wheat zucchini bread recipe). I could not get the icing smooth no matter how long I let the mixer run. Maybe the cream cheese needed a few seconds in the microwave? BUt it was till tasty, just didn’t look like icing.
