Confetti Bread

I haven't done a new recipe in a while, but this one turned out well and when added to a fruit smoothie makes for a really good and healthy breakfast.

Confetti Bread

1 pound zucchini, yellow squash and carrot, grated (use a food processor to make the work go quickly)
1 1/2 cups of sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
2 large eggs
1/4 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
zest of one lemon
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon salt

My children were very dubious that they would like any sweet substance that contains vegetables, but so far they have been pretty pleased with and surprised by the results.


Oh that looks good! Thanks for the recipe!

Just wanted to let you know you're in my thoughts/prayers as you anticipate baby #5. Let's see...I had my fifth when I was 35, I think, so I guess we're not 'that' different. :)

Glad you'll have this baby in your arms before it gets too awfully hot. Great timing on your part!
