Fall is in the Air...

Hello Friends!  Since it is now officially the beginning of fall, I thought it might be nice to share the recipe for one of my family's favorite fall treats:  Zucchini Bread!  Try this at home:

Zucchini Bread

3 eggs
2 ¼ cup sugar
3 tsp vanilla
1 cup oil
2 cups grated zucchini
3 cups flour

¼ tsp baking power
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
3 tsp cinnamon
1 cup nuts chopped (optional)
½ cup water if needed

Beat eggs until fluffy.  Add sugar, vanilla and oil. Blend in flour, baking powder, soda, spices.  Stir in zucchini and nuts. Bake at 350 until done.
(45 min. to hour)

Makes 2 regular sized loaves or 5-6 mini loaves.
Mmmmmm good!  A variation that I've tried is to replace the oil with is a really good bread to make ahead and freeze, as well.  
And that is one of the little things that makes us smile!
