Last year, I discovered a recipe for zucchini bread that was kindof out-of-this-world good. When I read the recipe, though, I was like, "Uh, curry powder in zucchini bread? I don't think so, lady." But Heidi Swanson hasn't done me wrong yet, so I thought I'd give it a try. Turns out, this stuff is amazing. I brought it to a dinner party this weekend and a little girl there kept asking, "Can I have some more of that cake?" And you know you've done well when you've gotten a 4-year old to think something with veggies in it is "cake".
|Even the batter is pretty.|
Awesome. It's moist and chunky, and the combination of flavors is so delightful. I especially like the poppy seeds - there's nothing more fun then surprising little crunchies in your baked goods. (Unless, of course, the crunchies are actually egg shells...)
I'm thinking this could even pass as a cake, actually, if you put it in a cake pan and frosted it with something cream cheese-y. Kinda like carrot cake, no? Try it and tell me what you think.
