3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups sugar (I only used 2 cups, but hope to try honey next time)
1 cup vegetable oil (I used lard, unhydrogenated of course)
4 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup water
2 cups grated zucchini (mine was peeled, shredded and frozen and thawed)
1 teaspoon lemon juice (I used vinegar, didn't have any lemon juice)
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (Nuts hurt my teeth, so I left them out)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, nutmeg, baking soda, cinnamon and sugar.
In a separate bowl, combine oil, eggs, water, zucchini and lemon juice.
Mix wet ingredients into dry, add nuts and fold in.
Bake in 2 standard loaf pans, sprayed with nonstick spray [I also used lard for this], for 1 hour, or until a tester comes out clean. (Alternately, bake in 5 mini loaf pans for about 45 minutes.)
disclaimer: caution must be taken when reading my blog. i'm a new creature and the Lord continues to mold and shape me through his will. older entries may seem to contradict the newer ones. there's a pretty good chance that they do for two reasons. first, because of my nature, as i strive for perfection, i will continue to fall short of the mark and should therefore be thankful for his grace and should seek his (and your) forgiveness for having been so foolish in the past. second, i continue to grow in him; and as changes are made, i have made attempts to change my blog to reflect those changes. in this event, please refer to #1. if you're interested in perfection, my blog isn't the place to be. pick up a king james bible (yup, i'm one of THOSE people) and read his PERFECT word.
