Ingredients

BLEND TOGETHER :

3 large
eggs
3/4 c
oil
2 c
white sugar
3 c
peeled and grated zucchini
2 to 3 tsp
vanilla

SIFT TOGETHER :

3 c
flour
1 tsp
soda
1 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
cinnamon

OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS :

1/2 c
walnuts ; chopped
1/2 c
dates ; chopped
1/2 c
raisins

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Select a large zucchini , peel , cut in half length wise and seed. Grate up the whole zucchini.
2
Cream together all the wet ingredients above in a large bowl.
3
sift all dry ingredients above and combine with the creamed mixture until smooth.
4
Pour into 2 bread loaf pans that have been greased and dusted with flour ( I use Pam bakers spray with the flour in it )
5
Note : I also like to cook these in small individual aluminum bread pans , just adjust baking time. You can also pour this into a 13x9 pan for a cake.
6
Bake at 325° for 1 hr. or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
7
Leave in the pans for 15 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
8
Note : Bread can be wrapped in aluminum foil after they are cooled and froze , when taking out to use re-bake until heated through and its just like fresh bread or cake again.
9
Measure the remaining zucchini into 3 cup portions and place in ziploc freezer bags and freeze for future use.
Note : when you thaw zucchini it will have some liquid , just drain it off before using in the recipe.
