pinch tips: How to Knead Dough



make 8 to 9 loaves


1 Hr


1 Hr


2 c
dates, chopped, and rolled in flour
1 c
figs, chopped, roll in flour
2 stick
butter, melted or margarine
2 c
vegetable oil
6 c
sugar, or can use 2 cups splendar and 4 cups sugar
6 tsp
1 can(s)
15 oz applesauce
6 c
grated zucchini
9 c
6 tsp
baking soda
3 tsp
3 tsp
baking powder
3 tsp
2 tsp
2 c
chopped walnuts

Directions Step-By-Step

put all dry ingredients, flour, slat, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices in large bowl and mix and set aside.
put chopped dates and figs aside in a bowl and chopped nuts in another. Have zucchini grated in another bowl. you can use all dated but I also had the figs...
now we can begin..
in electric mixer place 9 eggs and begin to beat
add melted butter and oil and whip add sugar,vanilla and beat well
add applesauce
take bowl of dry ingredients and begin to spoon into the mixer at low speed.
alternate with a cup of zucchini at a time unil all flour and zucchini are mixed in.
add the dates and figs and nuts mix gently and shut off mixer.
with spatula make sure all is mixed in from around the bowl.
prepare 8 large bread pans or as many small as you like...I used 5 smaller or medium pans bread pans and then a 13x15 glass pan for the rest...I use a larger pan sometimes and then cut it to share with my neighbors. grease and flour the pans..
add the batter.
preheat over to 350 degrees any time you want to..I usually turn my oven on just as I am about to grease my pans. bake abt 1 hour at 350degrees..cool or serve warm...great warm with butter and cool with cream cheese..
rolling the dates and figs in the flour keeps them from falling to the bottom of the cake or bread.
