Zucchini Bread, 1.5 lb.

Make this bread when you have a little extra zucchini to use from your garden. Make sure to blot the shredded zucchini dry, as it contains a lot of water.

    1 egg, large
    2 tablespoons butter or margarine
    1 cup shredded zucchini, blotted dry
    3 cups bread flour

    2 tablespoons dry milk
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1½ teaspoons salt
    1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
    ½ teaspoon ground cloves
    ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    2 teaspoons active dry yeast
    1½ teaspoons bread machine yeast

  2. Add all dry ingredients, except yeast, to bread pan. Tap pan to settle dry ingredients and then level, pushing some of them into the corners. Lock pan into bread maker.
