Zucchini corn bread

Zucchini corn bread

It goes with honey and tea very well. I enjoy every bite, especially in the evening. I will be breaking fast with a very good treat.

1 & 1/2 small zucchini, coarsely shredded (1 cup)
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 (8-ounce) can creamed corn
1/2 cup shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
2 large eggs, room temperature
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 & 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 & 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 baking soda
Dash cayenne pepper
For sweeter verson Add 1/2 cup plumped raisins

Combine zucchini, buttermilk, creamed corn, cheese, eggs, sugar, butter, salt, and cayenne in a large bowl, using a woodden spoon. Toss together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda in another bowl. Mix zucchini mixture with flour mixture.

Heat the skilled until very hot, remove from the heat. Scrape the batter into skillet and even the top with spatula. Bake until lightly browned around the edges and toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. use a knife to loosen the bread around the edges of the skillet, and carefully transfer the bread to a rack. let cool at lesat 10 minutes. Cut into 12 wedges, and serve warm or at room temperature.

I found the recipe at Weightwatchers 50th anniversary cookbook and modified to be sweeter.
