“Not a Soup” Squash Spice Bread

After posting for 15 days on 40 Days of Soup, I wanted to post a recipe other than soup and ironically it is baked in empty soup cans or larger tomato cans.

Helping a friend with her Christmas brunch, I created this spice bread made with zucchini and yellow squash. I usually make banana bread rounds but she is allergic to bananas and suggested a squash bread. After a search online and a disasterous attempt with a Paula Dean recipe (think it was wrong or something ‘cuz it spilled out all over the oven -see results to right) and using up way too much of the ingredients, I made up my own recipe. Here it is:

3 eggs, beaten

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup vegetable oil

2 teaspoons vanilla

2/3 cups zucchini, grated (one medium sized)

1/2 cup yellow squash, grated (only the solid parts, no seeds) (one medium sized)

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

3 teaspoons cinnamon

Blend dry ingredients in large bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a second bowl and then add to the dry ingredients. Stir thoroughly and pour into 2 greased loaf pans(or, as I did, put into 4 greased and sugared soup cans-empty, of course, see on the right how it is supposed to be). Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until done when tested with wooden toothpick.
