Zucchini Bread


3 Eggs
1 C Oil
2 C Sugar
3 tsp Vanilla
2 C Peeled ground, drained zucchini
3 C Flour
3 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 C raisins (or coconut, chocolate chips, or chopped nuts)

Preheat oven to 350
Sift together flour, cinnamon, salt, soda, and powder. Set aside in a bowl. Beat eggs, add oil, sugar and vanilla. Mix thoroughly. Add zucchini and mix. Add dry ingredients slowly. Bread batter should be closer to "stiff" than "cake-like". Add flour 1 Tbsp at a time if too runny. Add raisins (chips, etc). Grease loaf pans heavily. Bake 45 - 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

This is my all time favorite version of zucchini bread! I enjoy it with chocolate chips more than raisins, as it makes it more dessert-like, and a little more special as a breakfast bread.

This one is lucky to make it through a week, unless I hide the 2nd loaf in the freezer before the family sees it...even Captain Chaos enjoys it, running around shouting "Ma-nummy!" and stealing your piece off your plate if you don't look!

Oh yeah! Just in time for me to get fresh zucchini from my garden. Can't wait to try it!

I think this is the same recipe Aunt C gave me a few years ago. It's WONDERFUL! And you can swap out the zucchini with pumpkin or squash if you have it. I want to try it with apples. Yummy!
