  • 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/4 Cup Sesame seeds
  • 2 Cups Zucchini, coarsely shredded
  • 2 Tbs. Pine nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour dust loaf pan. In a bowl, beat egg to blend, add oil, sugar, five spice powder and pepper. Beat until mixture is well combined then stir in zucchini.

Stir together flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder and sesame seeds. Stir gently into zucchini mixture. Scrape batter into loaf pan, sprinkle pine nuts on top. Bake about 1 hour.
