a new recipe to try

~ thought i’d switch things up a bit & post a recipe today ~

SPAZ bread (sweet potato and zucchini)

a good way to get the kiddos to eat their veggies! too much sugar? use splenda & tell me how it comes out.

makes 1 loaf. preheat oven to 350°F.


2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1 1/2 cups grated peeled sweet potato
1 cup chopped walnuts, toasted


  • butter and flour 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. sift first 5 ingredients into medium bowl.
  • beat sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla to blend in large bowl.
  • mix in zucchini and sweet potato. + dry ingredients, then walnuts; stir well.

transfer batter to prep’d pan. bake about 1 hour 20 min.

cool bread in pan on rack 15 minutes. cut around bread to loosen. turn out onto rack and cool completely. (can be prepared 1 day ahead. wrap in foil and let stand @ room temp.)
