Recipe of the week:

Pumpkin Zucchini Bread


3 cups all-purpose flour

1 ½ tablespoons pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 eggs

2 ¼ cups white sugar

½ cup vegetable oil

½ cup canned pumpkin

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 ½ cups grated zucchini

1 cup chopped walnuts (Optional)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 8x8-inch baking dishes.

Sift flour, pumpkin pie spice, salt, baking soda, and baking powder together in a large bowl.

Beat eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, pumpkin, and vanilla extract together in a second bowl until mixture is smooth and creamy. Stir wet ingredients into flour mixture until combined; gently fold in zucchini and walnuts. Divide batter into the prepared baking dishes.

Bake in the preheated oven until cakes are lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 60 minutes. Allow to cool on rack for 20 minutes before removing from pans to finish cooling.

Cook’s Note:

Freezer-friendly. Do NOT drain grated zucchini, as it removes some of the moisture from the bread/ cake.Nutrition Facts
