Orange Zucchini Bread
1 Pkg. Duncan Hines Orange Supreme Cake Mix ***see tip, below
3 egg whites
3/4 C water
1/3 C oil
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 C grated zucchini
2 tsp. grated orange peel
1/4 C granulated sugar
2 T orange juice
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 8 x 5 loaf pans.
2) For loaves, combine cake mix, egg whites, water, oil and cinnamon in a large bowl. Beat at low speed with electric mixer until moistened. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Fold in zucchini and orange peel. Divide evenly into pans. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 15 minutes. Loosen loaves from pans. Invert onto cooling racks. Turn right-side up. Poke holes in tops of warm loaves with toothpick or long-tined fork.
3) For syrup, combine granulated sugar and orange juice in small saucepan. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Spoon hot syrup evenly over each loaf. Cool completely.
Makes 2 loaves (24 slices)
TIP: I could not find boxed Orange cake mix in my stores, so substituted the Moist Supreme Golden Butter mix....even Yellow cake mix would work.
