Mom's Zucchini Bread

This bread is awesome!
Yield: 2 Loaves


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups white sugar (I used 1 cup sugar and 1 cup applesauce)
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 or 3 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Crumb Topping (optional, but delicious)
 1/2 c. regular oats, 1/2 c. brown sugar, 1/4 c. flour, 1/4 t. cinnamon, 1/4 c. butter


  1. Grease and flour two 8 x 4 inch pans. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Sift flour, salt, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon together in a bowl.
  3. Beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar together in a large bowl. Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture, and beat well. Stir in zucchini and nuts until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.
  4. Bake for 40 to 60 minutes, or until tester inserted in the center comes out clean.  Pour crumble topping over after bread has baked for about 30 minutes--if you don't wait it'll sink.
  5.  Cool in pan on rack for 20 minutes. Remove bread from pan, and completely cool.

 fresh summer grape tomatoes are the best  :)
 no bakes, and happy ones at that  :)

 It's been a weird winter, but the lack of snow has allowed for extra frisbee golf 
Some creamy and cheesy baked fries

 my first two loaves of bread i ever made on my own
 It was spicy, buttery, and delicious  :)
