My best friend requested zucchini bread this weekend. We both enjoy nuts in our breads and I have a nut hater at home so this worked out perfectly. I’ll keep the plain loaf and share half of the the nutty loaf. I still have tons of zucchini so I plan to make two more loaves later this week, one to freeze and one to share with my parents.

3 eggs

2 c sugar

2 c zucchini, shredded

1 c canola oil

2 tsp vanilla

3 c flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 c chopped nuts

1/2 c raisins (optional)

Makes 2 loaves

Beat eggs and stir in sugar, zucchini, oil, and vanilla. Gradually add dry ingredients and spices. Stir in nuts and raisins, if using. Pour into bread pans which have been greased only on the bottoms. Bake at 325 degrees F for 60-80 minutes. Cool 10-15 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely. Also good with the addition of chocolate chips. When I add chocolate, I eliminate the spices.
