Best Zucchini Bread

Comment on this recipe

I melt 1 tablespoon of butter in each loaf pan in microwave and then smear it around bottom and sides. Then coat both with cinnamon and sugar mixed. Can also top with brown sugar in place of white sugar and cinnamon.

Ingredients

3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 cups white sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chopped nuts, optional

Instructions

Combine eggs, oil, sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, zucchini and nuts, if desired. Pour batter into two buttered 9x5-inch loaf pans. Sprinkle more cinnamon and sugar over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes. Makes two loaves.
