2 pounds of small cucumbers + Creativity =….


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!”

Turns out its not so popular, but HOLY SMOKES it is DELICIOUS. OMG move over banana and zucchini bread, Cucumber is in town!

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.
