greek yogurt 52 ways: #24 yellow summer squash bread

greek yogurt 52 ways: # 24 yellow summer squash
Our garden hasn't been great this year what with the the drought situation in California. We do have an abundance of yellow squash (and a couple zucchini) though! Lani suggested we make zucchini bread the other day... that got my wheels turning. Surely, there's a recipe for yellow squash bread. I came across this recipe and thought we'd give it a try. I substituted Greek yogurt for vegetable oil, which lessened the calories, but retained the moisture.

For this bread, preheat your oven to 350°. Then combine:
1 1⁄2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1⁄2 teaspoon of baking soda
1⁄4 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
3⁄4 cup of sugar

In a separate bowl, combine
2 eggs and
1⁄2 cup of Greek yogurt.
Mix in:
1 1⁄2 cups of shredded yellow squash.

Finally, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until combined. Pour into a greased (I used nonstick spray) loaf pan. Bake for 35-40 min. or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center. Cool. Then...

Eat! I made this bread Tuesday night thinking we could have it for breakfast the next day. Nope. We finished it all that night. I made more last night after my girls were in bed. I told Jesse, "I need to make this for a blog post tomorrow... so it's not for eating, yet." He said, "Ah. That's mean." Ha. So we ate some last night and my girls had some for breakfast. I made more this morning... for this post... and for eating! ;)
