OH-MY-GOODNESS-GOOD Zucchini Bread Recipe

This is THE YUMMIEST zucchini bread recipe.
You MUST make this.
I'm not joking.

While I was in Iowa, visiting the hot momma on the left, her son Gabriel (the handsome guy in orange and his equally handsome brother Sebastian in green) made this recipe and I am forever in debt to his mad baking skills. And so, without further ado,
Gabriel's now famous Zucchini Bread Recipe:
You’ll need:
-3 eggs
-1 cup of oil (veggie oil or butter can be used)
-2 cups of sugar
-2 cups of grated zucchini
-1 tsp vanilla
-3 cups of flour
-1 Tbsp cinnamon
-1 tsp salt
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp baking powder

*This recipe yields two loaves of zucchini bread (baked in 9x5x3” pans)*

  1. Beat eggs
  2. Add oil, zucchini, sugar, and vanilla and blend thoroughly
  3. Add flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and blend well.
  4. Pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans.
  5. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes ~ check for doneness as every oven is different
  6. Cool for 5-10 minutes before plopping it out of the pan
  7. Enjoy because we sure did!

Little O and I made this this morning and the house smells divine. I don't use the word divine very often, especially with italics. This must mean that I'm telling the truth.

I put this in the Family Reunion cookbook we are publishing this year. It should be a hit! Can you send me a couple more BEFORE Sunday night? We really need main dishes.

You are too funny! Where do you find the time for baking in the morning- I'm so jealous!

I will attempt to make this so called "perfect" recipe with Juju this weekend. A "massive storm" is coming tomorrow, so baking with to the sound of rain sounds like a great Sat afternoon!
