Loafing Around With Baker Babes Bakery

The Baker Babes just got back from a fabulous weekend in Toronto, Canada. We enjoyed visiting some of the wonderful bakeries up north and of course couldn't resist sampling their delicious sweets. The loaf cakes and breads were outstanding, easily enjoyed at breakfast, tea time or for an evening treat. These unfussy cakes, whether savory or sweet, are always sure to satisfy. So, here's one of our favorite easy recipes for zucchini bread for you to try, and some pictures of Toronto's best bakeries to give you a taste of that great town.

Zucchini Bread (Makes 2 loaves)

3 eggs
1 cup canola oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups peeled & grated zucchini
3 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Grease 2 9x5 loaf pans

Beat eggs until light in color. Add oil, sugar, zucchini, vanilla and mix well. In a medium bowl, sift all dry ingredients together and add to egg mixture, stirring well. Mix in nuts and pour into prepared loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour.

Looks wonderful. I love zucchini bread and have been grating and freezing the veggie for baking all winter long. Thanks for a new recipe.

I see your blog entails a lot of baking recipes. Since you like to cook, do you happen to have any recipes that are somewhat healthy meals? If you do, you should enter them into this cooking contest that's coming to Cleveland on September's the Aetna Healthy Food Fight. You can go to for more details, but the deadline for Cleveland is September 8th. Oh, and throughout the contest, celebrity cooks will be judging (Bobby Flay, Sunny Anderson, Sara Moulton, or Cat Cora). Good luck if you decide to enter and if not, please post more recipes! :)
