  • 250 ml (1 cup) whole-wheat flour
  • 190 ml (3/4 cup) all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 5 ml (1/2 teaspoon) baking powder
  • 5 ml (1/2 teaspoon) baking soda
  • 10 ml (2 teaspoons) cinnamon
  • 2,5 ml (1/4 teaspoon) nutmeg
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) maple syrup
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) light sour cream
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 10 ml (2 teaspoons) vanilla extract
  • 500 ml (2 cups) zucchinis, grated
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) raisins
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) pecans, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Put the rack in the middle position.
  2. In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  3. In another bowl, mix the moist ingredients: maple syrup, sour cream, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Whip in the dry ingredients until you get a smooth texture. Use a clean and dry cloth to press all the water out of the zucchinis, and add them to the mix, along with the raisins and 60 ml (1/4 cup) of pecans.
  4. Pour the mix in a 9X 5 in. non-stick loaf pan, or use a parchment paper in a regular pan. Garnish with the rest of the pecans (60 ml or 1/4 cup), and bake for 50-60 minutes. Use a toothpick to check if the centre is dry.
  5. Let the bread cool down in the pan for about 10 minutes before unmoulding.


Bon appetit!
