my favorite zucchini bread...

first off sorry for the SuPeR long vacation!!!  between Nauvoo & Lake Powell, blogging has been few & far between.  i made 5 loaves of this to take to Powell with us & it didn't last long down there!!!!!  i love this recipe because it is basic, not too many messy flavors & just plain delicious!!!!  i hope that you will love it as much as me.  & this time of year it tis the perfect way to use up all that zucchini you have piling up in your gardens!

{zucchini bread 101}

3 cups flour
1 TBSP cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 TBSP vanilla
2 cups grated zucchini
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

In a medium bowl mix together all dry ingredients.  Set aside.  In a large bowl beat together eggs, sugar, brown sugar, oil & vanilla.  Slowly mix in dry ingredients.  Blend in grated zucchini & nuts.  Pour into 2 greased & lightly floured 8x4 loaf tins.  Bake at 325 degrees for 60-70 minutes, or until toothpick comes out with only a few crumbs.
