Zucchini Bread

This is a family recipe. It's totally fattening, loaded with sugar and superbly delicious. I made it this weekend even though it doesn't fit in with our 'healthy eating' lifestyle. It does have zucchini in it though so does that make it better? Don't shy away from trying it because of the zucchini. It's SOOOOOOOO good! It makes 2 loaves or 1 cake.

Zucchini Bread

3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups zucchini (cut off the ends, grate the rest; peel and all)
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
Optional: 1 cup nuts or raisins

1 - Preheat the over to 325 degrees.
2 - Cream the eggs and sugar together until smooth. Add oil, vanilla and zucchini.
3 - Add flour. Before stirring, add the rest of ingredients and lightly stir them into the flour first. Then join with the wet batter underneath.
4 - Grease 2 loaf pans or 1 cake pan.
5 - Cook the 2 loaves 1 hour to 1 1/4 hours depending on your oven. Check for doneness by sticking a knife in the middle. Cook the cake for about 22-25 minutes and check it. It's done when the knife comes out almost clean.
