This recipe was given to me by a trustworthy friend (thanks MT), and I was right to try it out! It was my first time making zucchini bread and now I’m hooked.

3 eggs
2 c. sugar
1 c. oil
3 c. grated zucchini
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. walnuts (optional)
1/2 c. raisins (optional)

Beat eggs and sugar together. Add oil. Sift dry ingredients together and add to first mixture alternately with zucchini. Stir in nuts, raisins and vanilla. Pour into two greased and floured loaf pans (or muffin tins). Bake on lowest rack at 350 degrees for about one hour if making bread, or ~30 minutes if muffins. Let stand 10 minutes. Turn out on wire racks to cool. Breads freeze well.
