Zucchini bread recipes are often sweet, however this year I am putting a twist on my recipe and making it savory by adding cheese, and my boys love it! Try it out and tweet me feedback.
INGREDIENTS-1 1/2 cups zucchini, grated-2 cups flour-2 teaspoons baking powder-1/2 teaspoons baking soda-1/2 teaspoon salt-1 tsp garlic powder-1 cup milk-1 tablespoon vinegar, white or apple cider-1 egg-3 tablespoons butter, melted-1 cups grated sharp cheddar-1/4 grated parmesan cheese-2 green onions, chopped-1 scotch bonnet, finely minced2 tsp thyme leaves
DIRECTIONS-Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9 x 5 bread pan with non stick spray.
-Wrap grated zucchini in a paper towel and squeeze until some of the liquid releases. You don't need to completely dry it out. Just a tablespoon of liquid or so.
-In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, garlic powder and salt.
-In a small bowl, combine milk and vinegar. The milk will curdle a bit. Mix in melted butter and egg.
-Add milk mixture to dry mixture being careful not to over mix.
-Add grated zucchini, cheeses, onions, scotch bonnet pepper and thyme. Mixing lightly until just combined.
-Pour batter into prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
