Cucumber Bread recipe

From what I'm reading on other blog posts, no one is having an overload of cucumbers this year. ;)  Well just in case you may have one or two stragglers and are looking for something other than making pickles, here is a recipe for Cucumber Bread that I received today.

Thank you Ms. MD, supplier of the Inexpensive dishwasher detergent recipe for this recipe as well.   She is full of great ideas. 

Cucumber Bread recipe

3 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 cups grated, seeded, peeled cucumbers
1 cup vegetable oil
1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1.5 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

In a bowl, beat eggs.  Beat in sugar, cucumbers, oil and vanilla until well blended.  Combine the remaining ingredients and add to cucumber mixture.  Beat until combined.  Pour into two greased 9x5 loaf pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. 

She said that her kids absolutely loved it and it is similar to zucchini bread.  She will be freezing some for later.

    I've never heard of cucumber bread. I think when my cucumbers start producing lots, I will give it a whirl. Thanks for the recipe!

    I have loads of cucumbers and was looking for something to make with it other than pickles or cucumber salad. Looking forward to making it and seeing how it tastes.

    Try grilling slices just as you would do zucchini. Seasoning salt and a George foreman grill is all that's required.

  6. Anon, that sounds wonderful! I will try that.

I would love to hear from you!
