Zucchini Orange Marmalade Quick Bread


Yum. I was googling for stuff to do with zucchini a while ago and someone made this zucchini marmalade cake thing, following a recipe from the Tartine bakery cookbook. Bells went off in my head, zuke (check - garden full of it), marmalade (check - pantry full of homemade stuff) Tartine cookbook (check). To top it off oatmeal hasn't been on sale at the co-op for forever so I'm out of other breakfast stuff. I made 2 changes to the recipe: 1) I cut the sugar way back, their recipe is for cake, I wanted a healthy breakfast bread 2) I don't follow rules well, so I don't really measure things when I bake. That said, here are the proportions you are supposed to use:


Zuke Marm Cake
adapted from Tartine
1 3/4 cups + 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons canola oil
3/4 cup sugar (I use ~ 1/4 cup of honey)
1/2 cup orange marmalade (I use more)
2 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

mix wet, mix dry, mix 
350. 9x5 pan, an hour or so. low/wide pan a bit less...



Update: a version using Hamburg parsley root is pretty good, too
