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)


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

  3. Now stir the flour mix into the eggs,and sugar mixture.
