SANDRA’S SWEET SOURDOUGH ZUCCHINI BREAD with a GLAZED TOPPING

This is one of two brilliantly glazed and textured
sweet sourdough zucchini loaves
we like as is, with whipped cream on top
or French vanilla ice cream...
Yields: (2 loaves)
Prep:  15 Mins.
Bake/Cook: 50 Mins.

INGREDIENTS

Wet:
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1-1/2 cups *sourdough starter (see below)
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Dry (sifted):
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon fine-grain kosher salt
1-½ teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder (or regular)

Folding additions:

1 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)
1 cup grated zucchini (or apple, or pear)
¾ cup raisins (or any other dried fruit)
-------------

Glazed Topping (optional):
½ cup unsalted butter
2 teaspoons milk
½ cup dark brown sugar


 METHOD

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare two buttered and sugared loaf pans, and set aside.

In a large bowl, add the wet ingredients, and mix with a wooden spoon to combine.  Sift the dry ingredients through a sieve over the wet ingredients into large bowl, and incorporate into batter. 

Fold in remaining ingredients.

Evenly distribute batter between both prepared loaf pans.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Meanwhile, (if making glaze option) prepare the glaze ingredients by placing them in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Bring to a boil while whisking constantly.  Boil for 2 minutes, and spoon equally over warm loaves in loaf pans.  Use a pastry brush to distribute topping until it’s absorbed.  Carefully remove loaves when cool enough to handle. ~ Enjoy!

I made these and subbed raisins and nuts for chocolate chips. DELICIOUS!!!!!!! Everyone loved them, even my husband who has been hesitant on jumping on board the sourdough train:) Thanks for sharing!

Made this minus the glazed topping, added 1/2 tsp of ground ginger, 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg, upped the vanilla by 1 tsp, doubled the cinnamon and cloves and added 1/2 cup dried cranberries.

It made four loaves, two of which I packed up right away and froze for later use, one I have to friends and one got eaten right away. The first loaf that didn't very frozen was good. Today I pulled out a loaf from the freezer and served it as a snack to friends. It was about 10 times better than the loaf that got eaten fresh. Hands down, best zucchini bread I ever had in my life and my friends couldn't get enough either. I'll be making this recipe forever!
