My Favorite Zucchini Bread Recipe

We have been eating zucchini for weeks now...we love it fried with onions just until it's a little soft Yum! I made my favorite zucchini bread and I thought I would share it with you. Enjoy!

My Favorite Zucchini Bread

3 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

3 eggs

1 cup vegetable oil

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 cups of zucchini (shredded)

In large bowl mix the flour, sugar, salt,baking soda,and baking powder. In small bowl add eggs, oil, vanilla and cinnamon. Use a hand mixer and mix together....then add dry ingredients a small amount at a time. Blend in zucchini at the very end...( batter will be a little thick)

This makes two 8-in x 4in x 2 in loaf pans Bake at 350 for about 1 hour.

Don't forget you can add Chocolate chips to this recipe but reduce the flour to 2-3/4 cups.

I have also added Apple pieces....reduce sugar to 1 cup and add 1 cup brown sugar...and replace cinnamon with 1/4 teaspoon on nutmeg....Yum!

Happy Gardening....

Zucchini bread is one of my all-time favorites. I am definitely going to try the variation with the apples, cinnamon and nutmeg. I am powerless against nutmeg.
