DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Butter a 10 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan or any other bread loaf pan that has a 10 cup capacity.
  • Dust the pan with flour or fine dry bread crumbs and tap to shake out excess crumbs over paper.
  • Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon and set aside.
  • Wash zucchini well under running water, and cut off both ends.
  • Grate the zucchini. Do not drain. Press it firmly into a measuring cup. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs just to mix. Mix in the sugar oil ans vanilla.
  • Add the sifted dry ingredients and stir to mix. It will be thick.
  • Add the zucchini and mix thoroughly.
  • If using, stir in nuts and chocolate chips.
  • Turn into the prepared pan, smooth the top and bake.
  • If one large pan, loaf will bake for about 1 hours and 45 minutes. If using smaller loaf pans, it will take slightly less time. Either way, bake until a cake tester comes out clean and dry.
  • Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then cover with a rack, turn over the rack and cake pan, remove the pan and turn over again, leaving the cake right side up.
  • ENJOY!
