Sunshine, popcorn, and buttery yellow knitting. Lovely.
I also have a recipe to share with you. I had planned to do so earlier in the week, but it just seems to fit so perfectly with the 'yellow' theme, that it would be a shame not to share it today.
It is a recipe for Zucchini Loaf, given to me by my Mother-In-Law quite a few years ago now. It doesn't sound very appetising, but I swear it is one of the most moist and delicious things I ever bake. The 'healthiness' of the courgette is counter-balanced with a tonne of sugar, and even my kids will eat it. (Though, I confess, I did tell them it was banana until they'd finished the first piece..)
Charlotte's Zucchini Loaf
2 cups sugar
3 tsp vanilla
2c firmly packed grated zucchini (green or yellow)
1c walnuts or 3/4c choc chips (optional)
2 1/2c flour
4tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Preheat oven to 177C (350F).
Mix eggs, sugar, vanilla and oil.
Stir in zucchini and walnuts/choc chips.
Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
Place in two loaf tins, and bake for approx 40 minutes.
I usually freeze one loaf and we devour the other, slathered in butter, quite promptly. Nyum.
