Old Fashioned Zucchini Bread

If you garden is like mine...your gathering Zucchini by the bushel, and probably on a daily basis. My mom use to grow a gigantic garden, filled with everything you could possibly grow...things I had never even heard of. Lucky for us, we had several hills of Zucchini...resulting in many dinner dishes made with it, a lot of zucchini cakes, muffins, pancakes and YES, the delectable ZUCCHINI BREAD that we all know and love. This is my mom's recipe that she made for us when I was a child...we ate it almost daily during the summer. It's a favorite in my family (and will be forever) and its a good way to "sneak" a little of that "green squash" into something that they love...QUICK BREAD.

Old Fashioned Zucchini Bread
3 eggs
1 c. oil
2 c. sugar
2 c. grated zucchini
3 t. salt
3 c. flour
1 t. soda
3 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. baking powder
1/2 c. chopped nuts
2 t. vanilla

Combine eggs, oil, sugar, zucchini, and vanilla. Mix well. Combine flour, soda, salt and baking powder; stir well and add to egg mixture. Add zucchini and mix until well blended. Add nuts and stir. Coat 2 loaf pans with cooking spray and dust with flour. Divide batter into the 2 loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

*I like to double my recipe. Its always nice to have this bread on hand for the kids to munch on....we even eat it for breakfast.
