Move over, zucchini - Darlene Kamis has replaced you with cucumbers in this moist, cinnamony loaf. "When we have lots of cucumbers in our garden, I use them in my favorite zucchini recipes," relates the Romeoville, Illinois cook.

Ingredients

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

Directions

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