Marie's Famous Zucchini Bread

     Hello!  It's Recipe Tuesday and today's recipe comes from my mom, Marie.  For as long as I can remember I've had a severe dislike for vegetables.  So imagine my surprise when I realized that the delicious bread she had made all through my childhood contained a VEGETABLE.
     Now that I'm an adult I've started to look at veggie in a different light, especially if they're disguised in a sweet bread.  last week's recipe came from a magazine but this recipe was inspired by a trip to the local Farmer's Market earlier in the summer and seeing some ginormous zucchini's. I remembered my mom's bread and decided to give it a try.  It's super easy to make (especially if you have your husband grate the zucchini) and absolutely delicious.  We're a fan of walnuts in our house and decided to add those to the mix but you could certainly add pecans if you prefer those.

Zucchini Bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 2 cups grated zucchini

1. Preheat oven to 350.  Grease 2 loaf pans.

2. Beat eggs for 2-4 minutes using stand mixer. 

3. Grate zucchini and squeeze dry with paper towel.  Slowly add zucchini and remaining ingredients; mix until well blended.

4. Bake for 1 hour.  Let cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from pan.  Enjoy.
