I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Zucchini Bread

It's that time of the year when we need zucchini recipes. This is a very easy and delicious bread. Make it into loafs or muffins.


ZUCCHINI BREAD (makes 2 loafs)

Ingredients:
*3 cups flour
*1 teaspoon salt
*1 teaspoon baking powder
*4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
*3 eggs
*1 cup vegetable oil
*2 1/4 cups sugar
*3 teaspoons vanilla
*2 cups grated zucchini
*2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:
~Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
~Grease and flour two bread pans.
~Sift flour, salt, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon together in a bowl.
~Beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar together in a large bowl.
~Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture, and beat well.
~Stir in zucchini and nuts and mix well.
~Pour batter into prepared pans.
~Bake for 40-60 minutes, or knife comes out clean when stuck in center.
~Cool in pan on rack for 20 minutes.
~Remove bread form pan, and finish cooling.

Variation:
`Omit walnuts
`Add 1 cup blueberries (I coat them lightly in flour so they don't sink to the bottom of the bread).
`Add 1 cup flaked coconut
`Add 1 cup chocolate chips (I coat them lightly in flour so don't sink to the bottom of the bread).


Helpful Hint:
When I prepare the bread pans, I substitute the flour with cinnamon sugar. It works well and leaves a hint of cinnamon sugar on the bread.
