Zucchini Bread


Just in time for St. Patrick's Day! This zucchini bread is moist and the crust gets slightly crispy and sugary when you bake it! My mom gave us a loaf last weekend for St. Patrick's Day and we just broke into it today (I love my freezer). I asked her for the recipe because it's yummy and I wanted to share it! [By the way, this bread was colored with green food coloring (yeah, my mom's awesome like that*)...it normally wouldn't turn out this green.]

Zucchini Bread

Ingredients:

3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
3 eggs
2 cups grated zucchini
2 cups sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 cup oil
Nuts (if desired)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Sift flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon together. Set aside. In a separate bowl beat together eggs, zucchini, sugar, and vanilla. Then beat in the oil. Stir in the dry ingredients. Add nuts if desired. Grease and flour two loaf pans. Bake for 60 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

I know there are a million zucchini bread recipes out there, but trust us, this one is good!!


* Side note: speaking of my mom coloring food...she's always been festive with holidays. It used to gross us out sometimes...like once when she dyed our milk (and cream of rice) blue for April Fool's Day. Yuck! ;)
