  • 1Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2tsp nutmeg
  • 1cup The Spicy Olive’s medium extra virgin olive oillike our Picual
  • 1 1/4cup granulated sugar
  • 1cup brown Sugar
  • 1Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2cups grated zucchini
  • 1cup macadamia nutschopped
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Liberally grease a 9″ loaf pan with some EVOO. Set aside briefly.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a separate large bowl, combine the Melgarejo Picual, sugars, vanilla and eggs until blended. Gradually add the flour mixture until just barely combined –
  4. Slowly fold in the zucchini and nuts. You do NOT want to over-mix the batter as this will lead to tough bread. Spoon the batter evenly among the pan(s). Bake for approx. 50-60 minutes or until the top is light golden brown and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean or with moist – not wet – crumbs. Cool before serving.
