Moist Zucchini Bread

Tis the season for making zucchini bread. Many a garden is trying to give away a zucchini or two because somehow one plant always provides enough for a whole neighborhood! Take that zucchini and make this bread. It is quick to make and moist and satisfying. It isn't even that bad for you since you can substitute some of the oil for applesauce if you desire and there are 3 cups of zucchini in the mix! Yummm...

Zucchini Bread
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil or applesauce
2 1/4 cups white sugar
3 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups grated zucchini (DO NOT drain the zucchini)

1. Grease and flour two bread pans. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
2. Sift flour, salt, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon together in a bowl.
3. Beat oil, eggs, vanilla, and sugar together in a large bowl. Add sifted ingredients to the mixture and beat well. (The mixture will be REALLY stiff. Don't worry, the zucchini will soften it up perfectly!)
4. Stir in the zucchini until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.
5. Bake for 40-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
6. Cool in pans on wire rack for about 20 minutes. Remove bread from pans and allow to completely cool on wire racks.

Makes: 2 loaves

Share this bread with your neighbors and you are sure to make some new friends!!
