Foods That Start with the Letter ‘Z’

Zingers.  Zagnut.  Ziti.  Zatar.  Zucchini.  Ah, zucchini.  The golden child of the squash family, due to its versatility.  With the heat-wave passing in central San Diego, we felt the need to sing a torch song to this blessed vegetable by baking it up into the old standby, ZUCCHINI BREAD!

As a frequent baker, one would assume I had all-purpose flour in the pantry.  Well, I assumed that myself, and we all know the dangers of assuming.  It makes an…well, let’s just say I was lucky to have had a big old bag of whole-wheat flour instead.  Please note that, while the bread did appear ever so slightly drier than usual (just merely), the nature of the whole-wheat flour gave a heartier flair to this quickbread.  I’d use it again, perhaps adding just 1/8c more of zucchini or increase the oil by 2-3t.  Otherwise, yum!
