Zucchini Bread

Summer is here and with it, zucchini! This wonderful vegetable/fruit that can be used in so many ways is marvelous.

One of my favorite things to do with zucchini is make this deliciously spicy bread.

I never had a problem getting my children to eat their veggies when I cooked them into this bread.

Set oven to 325 F.

Beat together:

3 eggs                                             2 cups grated zucchini

1 3/4 cups sugar                           1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup oil

Stir in:

3 cups flour                                   2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt                              1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon baking soda               1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Optional add 1/2 cup chopped nuts and/or 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Pour into 2 well greased loaf pans 8 1/2 x 4 1/2.

Bake 1 hour or until loaves just begin to pull away from the sides of the pan.

Coolin in the pan on a rack for 5 minutes, then turn out onto the rack to finish cooling.
