For as long as I can remember my mom has made zucchini bread for the family at least once a year. Every holiday season it was a treat to receive loaves of them from her. Not to long ago I had an abundance of lovely zucchinis and her bread was the first thing to come to mind when I wondered what to do with the bounty before me. Calling her on the telephone and getting the recipe first hand I immediately went to work that afternoon on a bread that has always reminded me of home.
Mom's Zucchini Bread
2 c. sugar
1 c. vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. shredded zucchini
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. raisins (I used a variety mixture)
1 c. nuts (I had walnuts)
1 c. crushed pineapple (well drained)
3 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. salt
Mix ingredients together and pour mixture into 2 9x5 loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or more until done, enjoy : )
I sift or whisk together my dry ingredients and then add all of my wet ingredients to the dry mixture before blending together.
Thanks for sharing mom! Love you...
