Zucchini Bread


I made this Zucchini Bread with a big piece of homegrown Zucchini given by a friend.  This is very easy to prepare and there's no necessity for a cake mixer.  This bread is not too sweet as sugar has been reduced but it's aromatic, full of grated Zucchini, moist and delicious.




















Recipe for Zucchini Bread  (adapted from 'here' with modification)

    Ingredients
    • 1/3 cup melted butter or vegetable  oil (I used oil)

    • 1 egg, lightly beaten
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1.1/2 cup grated Zucchini
    • 1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice.  (I used almond flakes)
    • 1/2 cup raisins, chopped
    • A pinch of salt
    Method
    1. In a large bowl, mix sugar, egg and vanilla till well combined.  Stir in the grated Zucchini followed by the oil.  Mix till well blended.
    2. Sift in flour 1/3 at a time with the salt, over the liquid mixture, mix well.
    3. Add in nuts and raisins.
    4. Pour batter into  a lightly greased and floured 4 x 9 x 3 inch loaf pan.
    5. Bake in a preaheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 35 to 40 mins.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
    6. Let cool in pan for about 10 mins. before unmoulding onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Vietnamese Caramelised Chicken ~ 越南焦糖鸡

This is a quickie and delicious chicken dish, braised in caramelised sauce.  The ingredients are not too difficult to find and if you can't find kaffir lime leaves, you can omit them altogether.  This dish serves well with white rice and a side veggie dish.  Try it!

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
