Fall Recipe #2 - Zucchini Bread

Another easy recipe that is purely divine is an all time favorite of mine is Zucchini Bread.
I made this bread the other night and the intoxicating smell wafting through the house was amazing. Justin, my partner looked at me funny when he saw me grating zucchini to put in the bread, but an hour later when the warm bread from the oven
was melting in his mouth
and his eyes were rolling in the back of his head
he understood completely. It's the best sweet bread!

Recipe # 2 - Zucchini Bread
by Stacey Larnerd

3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 cup Canola Oil (or Applesauce for less calories)
3 tsp vanilla
1 cup nuts (pecan or walnut)
2 cups grated zucchini (leave peel on for color)

Put ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat together. Split the batter into two bread loaf pans and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.
Let cool for half an hour then slice and enjoy!

If you whip this up some night - tell me what you think!
