Mom's Zucchini Bread

Few things taste more like home to me than my mom's zucchini bread. Sure there's a few recipes that rival it - her apple cake, her oatmeal cake, her giant chocolate chip cookies, her homemade mashed potatoes to name a few - I will get to all of these eventually on here, but today I made the zucchini bread.

I'm having a few house guests this weekend so I thought it would be fun to have an assortment of mini muffins for a quick breakfast Sunday morning. This recipe will make 2 loaves - I decided to make one loaf and the remaining batter made 48 mini muffins. These will keep in the freezer too!

Mom's Zucchini Bread
Mix together:
3 eggs
1 C oil
2 C sugar
2 C peeled & grated zucchine (about 1 large zucchini)
3 t. vanilla
In separate bowl mix:
3 C flour
1 t. salt
1/4 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
3/4 t. nutmeg
3 t. cinnamon

Add flour mixture to egg mixture. Add 1 small can crushed pinapple (drained)
Divide between 2 loaf pans. Bake 1 hour @ 350 degrees.

Mom's Zucchini Bread is the best. Your sister (Jen) keeps a very healthy pantry...the journey has been great. I do not miss all the junk I was mistaking for food. I do not think I could eat pasta again if it was not whole wheat. Great Blog. Thanks for sharing!!!
