  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Beat in the milk, sugar, butter, orange peel and salt. Beat in the zucchini, raisins, whole wheat flour, cardamom and enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/4 hours.

  4. Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to cool on a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf.

"I doubled the recipe, omitted the raisins...and the resulting bread is outstanding! It's substantial in the mouth, it sliced beautifully, and it makes superior toast. I'll make this again for sure"

"This bread is delicious. The blending of the white & wheat flours, the orange rind and the cardamom are improved upon even more by the toaster!!"

"This tastes more like a wonderfully moist cinnamon raisin bread than zucchini bread, but it's delicious. Everyone who tasted it wanted the recipe."
