This week the kids and I went to Newcastle Fruit and Produce and after stocking up on $11 (at 3.99 a lb) of Cherries a ton of delicious grapes and some corn on the cob, I wondered over to their discount bin. A bag of a bunch of small cucumbers for $1!!
I didn’t know what to do with the cucumbers, but I thought “hmm I wonder if I could make cucumber bread!”
You will need:
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups finelychopped, or grated (I used a garlic press hahaha) cucumbers
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Beat your eggs in a bowl. Next beat in sugar then cucumbers, oil and vanilla. Blend together.
Now in a separate bowl mix together the remaining ingredients. Then add to cucumber sugar mixture. Blend together thoroughly.
Bake in a greased bread pan (2) or cupcake tins (I did a loaf of bread AND muffins. ) At 350 Degrees for an hour.
Let cool and ENJOY.
