I'm not sure what I like best about this recipe -- the way it tastes, or how good it makes my house smell while it's baking!

Ingredients

1 c
vegetable oil
2 c
sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
3 c
all purpose flour, sifted
2 c
zucchini, peeled and shredded
1 tsp
salt
3 tsp
pumpkin pie spices
1 tsp
baking soda
1/4 tsp
baking powder
3
eggs
1/2 c
nuts, optional

Step-By-Step

1NOTE: This recipe is a double-batch, so it will make TWO LOAVES. If you only want one, split the ingredient amounts in half.

2Preheat oven to 325. Peel and shred zucchini, set aside. Sift flour with salt, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.

3Beat eggs until foamy. Add in oil, sugar, and vanilla.

4Fold in zucchini.

5Add flour mixture.

6Turn batter into well-greased/floured or sprayed loaf pans. Bake for 60-75 minutes, depending on your oven. Test center of bread with a toothpick to check for doneness.

7Cool in pans for 10 minutes, then turn onto baking rack to cool entirely.

8TIP: When bread is cooled, I wrap pretty tightly with saran wrap, then tinfoil and let them sit on the counter for 24 hours. This makes the bread a bit more moist and the spices bloom a bit more. Serve with soft butter.
