I have had this recipe so many years that I don't remember who gave it to me. We enjoy it very much, and the kids would eat squash this way when they wouldn't touch it in other ways.
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup oil
- 3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3 cups zucchini, grated,raw and unpeeled
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
- Beat together the eggs, sugar, and oil.
- Add the other ingredients, beating well.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour in two oiled and floured loaf pans.
I have been making this recipe for years with one difference, 3 tsp. of cinnamon! It is a fabulous recipe and I am frequently asked to share the recipe. Thanks for posting, I'll send those who want the recipe to this site and your recipe from now on!!!
This was a great base recipe for zucchini bread. The texture was wonderful, moistness delightful, the only thing lacking was flavor. I think this needs more than just some cinnamon in it to make that 5 star.
I have made this several times and it is always wonderful. It is good to add chocolate too. I have even made it with yellow squash and it was good.
