Zippidity Do Dah, Zippidity Yea, My oh My what a wonderful day! One of my favorite cheerful songs. Ever feel as if your day is way too busy? No matter what you do everything seems to be frustrating and overwhelming? You are just stuck in a bad mood, no particular reason why.
Sittu, my grandmother, had a cure for those type of days.” You can’t have a bad day when you are baking a cake for someone else.” Yes, zucchini bread falls in this category. Cupcakes, muffins, cookies, and even pies have the same results. It is a matter of – do I want to stay stuck in the bad mood, or do something to change it.
Many of my neighbors grow zucchini, and they are generous about sharing their harvest, so I am always looking for new ways to change up how to serve it. The first time I made zucchini bread I did not drain the grated zucchini. You guessed it, the mushy blob that came out of the oven- what a mess. Adjustments were made, several more batches were made, even a few trips to the store as I had run out of flour and eggs. Yes, determined to bake a cake the mission was finally complete! I brought a loaf over to my neighbors, we sat, giggled, ate and enjoyed the warm summer evening. Oh, and I had forgotten all about my “bad mood” – Bonus!!
