Zucchini bread

This recipe comes from The Vegan Next Door. The vegan blogosphere has exploded with zucchini-related posts in the last week, to my great confusion, since zucchinis don’t seem to be that proliferous at the markets here in Ottawa.

I hope The Vegan Next Door doesn’t mind me re-posting her recipe (with my adaptations), since I can’t seem to link to the original posting.

Zucchini Bread with Streussel Crust

Batter
3 “flax eggs” (or 3 egg equivalents like En-R-G egg replacement)
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups grated zucchini
2 tsps vanilla extract
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ cup chopped walnuts

Crust
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp 100% vegetable oil margarine, softened
2 tsp cinnamon
½ cup chopped walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 325º. Grease and flour two 8×4 inch loaf pans (or 8×8 square pan).
2. Batter: In a large bowl, mix egg replacer until light and frothy. Mix in oil and sugar. Stir in zucchini and vanilla. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt and nuts; stir into the egg replacer mixture. Divide batter into prepared pans.
3. Crust: Combine all ingredients in medium sized bowl. Mix together really well (best to use your hands) and crumble on top of the batter prior to baking.
4. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, or until done. (It took 90 minutes a 8×8 pan)

I took this cake to a little get-together and everyone said they liked it. I think there’s too much oil in the recipe so if I made it again I’d replace half of it with applesauce.

Thanks again to The Vegan Next Door for the idea!

    Mmm… walnuts, zucchini, sounds great! Sorry to hear you don’t have many zucchini in your parts. I found the cutest ones last Saturday at the Farmers’ Market that are shaped like softballs.

    Hey Ottawa ladies! I’m in Ottawa, too. Are you going to the next veg society potluck? I really want to go the the next one. I’ve been to one, but it was months and months ago.
    Also, my best Ottawa vegan tip – agar is super cheap at Grace Foods (for your gelling needs).
