Zucchini Balsamic Dessert
From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at www.dorothymcnett.com. This has traditionally been called "bread" but it truly is more like a dessert. Serve with a sweet dessert wine as a special treat. Or, if you own an aged Traditionale Balsamico, slice the bread very thinly. Serve with a dollop of vanilla ice cream sprinkled with about 1/4 teaspoon of the balsamic.
Preheat oven to 375. Beat eggs until light and fluffy. Add sugar, oil, zucchini, and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together flour, salt, soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Add to zucchini mixture and stir until well blended, adding ginger and nuts. Pour into lightly oiled tube or loaf pan, or several small mini pans. Bake 1 hour if using one pan, reduce timing to about 45 minutes if using smaller pans. To serve, place a slice on a dessert plate, dollop on a bit of vanilla ice cream if desired, and then drizzle with a few drops of really aged balsamic vinegar.
