Cheesy Zucchini Bread- it's what's for lunch!

Preheat oven to 350

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 1/2 cups reduced fat grated cheese (I like a cheese blend)
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  •  1/4 cup chopped peppers (hot or sweet, your choice)
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs

  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients with the zucchini, cheese, scallions and peppers. Combine buttermilk and eggs in a measuring cup, and beat lightly. Pour over dry mixture, and stir to combine. Will be very thick. Pour into a greased 9x5" loaf pan, and bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Turn out on a wire rack and cool completely before slicing.
    OK, so the cooling completely is the hardest part, honestly. Now for lunch I am having a thin slice of this, topped with a slice of fresh tomato, salt, pepper, and provolone cheese, run under the broiler. YUM!!!
