MAKES TWO BREAD LOAVES
YOU WILL NEED:
1*Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Farenheit
*Using a large mixing bowl and mixer, combine eggs, sugar, and vanilla, and mix well. You then add the oil and mix until well blended.
2*In a separate bowl (or carefully added onto batter using layer of flour first), combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
*Gradually add this dry mixture into your batter using a mixer or large wooden spoon.
*Mix until well blended.
3*Add the grated zucchini to the batter, and stir in well with a large wooden spoon.
*(At this stage, you may add any extras such as nuts, apple slices, chocolate chips, raisins, etc...)
*Pour the batter into two bread loaf pans(5.25x9x2.75in.)or equivalent.
*Bake in center of oven at 350 degrees F.
for 45-60 mins.
*Do not over bake and do not underbake. A good way to check them for being done is using toothpicks approx. 1-1/2" from edge of pan. Toothpicks in center will be clean but look moistened. (You don't want it overdone)
*Cool Bread in the pans for approximately 15 mins, then take a rubber spatula and slide it down the sides and ends, to gently loosen.
*For wonderfully moist bread with flavorful top, carefully loosen the bread from sides and bottom, and tip upside down onto large piece of aluminum foil. Flip the bread right-side up carefully, using the piece of foil, and wrap up into the foil. Keep on counter until ready to eat!
*You can also be creative and use a glaze over the zucchini bread, use in muffin pans, make cookies, or bake in a thin layer on a cookie sheet, and make a jellyroll type dessert using applepie filling, vanilla glaze, or glaze with raisins and roll up like a jellyroll.
*Enjoy! (You may need to double the recipe so you can share with others)
