Chai Zucchini Bread

I was attracted to the original recipe because I enjoy a good Chai Tea and was sure those flavors would work great in a quick bread.  The original recipe is for Chai Banana Bread, but with the beautiful Zucchini coming from the farm I changed it up a bit – Success!

1 ½ cups shredded Zucchini
1/3 cup plain yogurt
5 T butter, melted
2 eggs
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
2 ¼ cup AP flour
¾ t baking soda
½ t salt
½ t ground cardamom
¼ t ground cinnamon
¼ t ground ginger
¼ ground allspice
1 t vanilla extract
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine Zucchini, yogurt, butter, and eggs in a mixer on medium speed.  Add the sugar and beat until just blended.

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add flour mixture to wet ingredients, just until blended.

Combine the spices into a mixture.  Add the mixture and vanilla to the batter, and stir in.  Pour into a bread pan coated with cooking spray.

Bake for 65 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes, then remove to a rack for complete cooling.

NOTE: The original recipe does contain instructions to include a glaze.  Watch the amounts for spices and vanilla – they will vary if you include the glaze.
