I hope you enjoy this wonderfulbread as much as I do.
When you smell that delicious flavor of the black walnuts a baking...you will think you died & went to heaven!! Back in the early 50's in Indiana we had two huge black walnut trees..(the wash line was strung between both trees) we always enjoyed them.
Oh! how I missed them when we moved. Now 60 yrs later, I want to thank J.A.P. Deb Crane, for being sweet enough to mail me some from her home in WI.After she heard how I love those walniuts! She is my angel!
I would not have this recipe to share with you & enj with out her generous offer

How to Make ZUCCHINI,BLACK WALNUT BREAD ...(no yeast)


  • 1In a mixing bowl beat together the eggs, oil, sugar,black walnut flavoring and ..BAKING SODA !

    (grandma always said the baking soda, is spread more evenly..when you add it to the egg sugar mixture)...so I DO IT !
  • 2Stir in the shredded and drained zucchini.
    Into the sugar, egg mixture.
  • 3Now stir the flour mix into the eggs,and sugar mixture.
    Stir well
  • 4Add those chopped
    WONDERFUL BLACK WALNUTS into the above.
    Thank you DEb CRANE..... again!!!
  • 5Put the batter into two WELL GREASED loaf pans
    Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 1 hour.

    When done remove from oven....
    let sit for 10 minutes..
    Turn out onto a wire rckk to cool.

    Now get the butter out.......LOL
  • 6HINT:...I test for doness..with a pointed wooden chop stick...inserted into the middle of the loak..
    .If it comes out clean,with no batter on it..
    Your loafs are done.....Nancy../9/14/12
