Zucchini Bread Recipe

I didn’t wait long after the start of fall to make some zucchini bread.  This recipe is a combination of recipes I’ve seen online and one that my mother-in-law gave to me a few weeks ago.

– 3 cups all-purpose flour
– 1.75 cups of sugar (most recipes call for 2 cups, so you can add more if you’d like)
– 1 tsp. salt
– 2 tsp. cinnamon (sometimes I add 3 tsp if I want more of a cinnamon taste)
– 1 tsp. baking soda
– 1 tsp. baking powder
– 1 cup of oil (I used 1/2 cup of oil and 1/2 cup of applesauce to reduce calories)
– 3 eggs
– 2 tsp. vanilla
– 2 cups of grated zucchini

Directions
Pre-heat the oven to 350F.  Mix together dry ingredients and add oil, eggs, vanilla, and grated zucchini and stir until combined.  Pour batter (about  2.5 cups each) in to two greased bread pans and bake for 55-70 minutes.  Bread is done when toothpick comes out clean.  I leave mine in for 70 minutes.

Then, share with friends

Or keep them for yourself.  Enjoy!
