YUM! Why don’t I cook more often? I find that I make excuses for myself.. that I don’t have enough time or I don’t think I have all the ingredients… why?? Basically what I am getting at is, when I find that I do make that extra effort to make something homemade for the family, everyone appreciates it. The house always smells delicious, the kids love eating what is fresh out of the oven and don’t even get me started on how pleased the husband is with some home cooked anything!

Today I have the pleasure of sharing Josephine’s Zucchini Loaf. I found this recipe on her blog back in August and have been wanting to try it out ever since. Boy am I glad that I didn’t wait any longer! Josephine is a very talented mother and blogger, she shares stories about motherhood and more delicious recipes on her blog, Josephine: A Creative Life. Thank you Josephine for letting me share your awesome recipe today, I hope that you all get a chance to try this one at home, and if you can’t today — pin it for another time (just don’t make too many excuses like I do, haha!)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cocoa
  • 3 tsps cinnamon
  • 2 cups of grated zucchini
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of brown (or yellow) sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup dried cranberries (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 8 x 4 loaf pans. Grate two cups of zucchini and set aside.
  1. In one bowl, mix flour (white and whole-wheat), salt, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and cinnamon together until all the dry ingredients are well combined.
  1. In another bowl, using a hand or stand-up mixer, beat eggs, vanilla, sugar and vegetable oil until they resemble a cream.
  1. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture and mix until well combined.
  1. Add zucchini and dried cranberries and mix.
  1. Divide batter evenly between two pans, filling each about ¾ of the way.
  1. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until loaves are baked all the way through. Let stand/cool for 20-30 minutes and serve.

  • Third day back from Spring break and these @boomsmoothies have been a real treat in the mornings. Each pack has two servings (or one mama servings and 2 kid servings), they are filled with a variety of fruits and veggies and only take seconds to make in the morning. I'd call that a breakfast win!

  • Walked away from tonight's @vancitybusinessbabes event feeling so good. Such a pleasure to chat alongside @erintreloar of @rawbeautytalks and @thevancouveriteblog to a room full of eager business babes. I got a few great things out of tonight, the best was being told that my offline self very much reflects my online self. This means so much to me as I aim to be as true to myself (and all of you) as possible online but you just never know how others perceive it.
