Zucchini Bread

I have been meaning to make this for a few days now, but never seemed to have enough time until today. And Zucchini Bread usually isn't my favorite, but we had some extra zucchini sitting around and this was a good way to get rid of it. And I really like it!

Mom's Zucchini Bread (not my mom, I found this online)

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 1/4 cups white sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional, I didn't have any and I don't like nuts in my bread)

Grease and flour two 8x4 inch pans. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Sift flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon together in a bowl.

Beat eggs, oil, vanilla and sugar together in a large bowl. Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture and beat well. Stir in zucchini and nuts until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.

Bake for 40 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack for 20 minutes.

  1. We just made zucchini bread a few days ago, too. I think it was pretty close to the same recipe you have. It was devoured very quickly.
