Zucchini Bread Recipe

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 60 minutes

Yield: 2 loaves


2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cloves
2 cups shredded unpeeled zucchini squash
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 digital thermometer to test your bread.  The internal temperature of the bread should be at 200 degrees F. when done.
