I went to grab a cook book out of the cupboard last week and vowed to try some new recipes….
Here is one I tried from an Amish cook book. It’s just called Zucchini Bars. Hubby declares that they have met his approval and I can make them again. What’s unique about these is that there are chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in them.
Here’s the recipe….
1 cup cooking oil
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup water
2 cups grated zucchini
2 1/2 cups white flour
1 cup wheat flour (Confession: I was too lazy to go get the wheat flour in the pantry so I just used all white)
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup nuts (I left these as Hubby isn’t a fan)
Combine oil, sugar and eggs. Stir in water and zucchini. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Spread into a large bar pan (13″ x 18″) Bake at 350 for 5 minutes. Take out and sprinkle with chips and nuts. Bake 30 minutes more.
The original recipe called for 2 cups each of the chips. That just seemed like too much for me.
These were good and a nice way to use up some zucchini.
