Mom's Zucchini Bread

This is my mother's recipe for Zucchini Bread I have been making it for 20 years. It is so good warm.

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini (about 3 medium)
  • 1 cup oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves

Preheat oven to 325F. Grease (crisco is best) bottoms only of two 9x5 pans.
In a big bowl, beat eggs until a wire whip until foamy. Stir in sugar, zucchini, oil and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients and blend well by hand. Do not use a mixer.
Divide batter equally between 2 pans. Bake at 325F for 50 or 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes, remove from pans. Cool on wire rack.

RD can you explain "shredded zuccini"? Would you shred it on like a cheese grater(sp)?

Yes, grated with a grater with big holes. Also if the zucchini is not too tough you do not need to peel it.
