Zucchini Bread


This fantastic recipe will fill 2 large loaf pans. Thanks to my friend Sarah for sharing.

 

Ingredients:

3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar

In a large mixing bowl, beat the first three ingredients together until light and foamy using an electric hand mixer. Then add the following:

2 cups grated fresh zucchini
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325-degrees F.

Fold in the rest of the ingredients shown above using an electric hand mixer on the lowest setting. Line two standard-sized loaf pans with parchment paper. Divide batter between the pans.

Bake for 1 hour. Then increase the heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 10 minutes. When done, a knife or toothpick should pull out clean when placed in the center of each loaf.

Remove, let stand ten minutes, then cut into 1/2″ slices and serve with real butter.
