Cook time: 60 min
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 cups all-purpose
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cloves
2 cups shredded unpeeled
1 cup chopped nuts of your choice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour two (2) 9 by 5-inch loaf pans.
In a large bowl, cream eggs, sugar, and vegetable oil until light and fluffy. Mix in flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda.
Add cloves, zucchini, nuts, and vanilla extract; stir until well blended.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pans and bake 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
NOTE: Be sure and poke the toothpick to the center of the loaf. A good check is to use an instant
