mmmmm, mondays: grandma's famous zucchini bread


i was fortunate enough to grow up in the same town as my grandma (grandmommie, as we used to call her). not only was she an incredible woman, but she was an amazing baker. this week, many of my family are gathered in san diego for a family reunion. grandmommie will be missed and i feel an empty void without her here to enjoy the family all together. in honor of her, i am sharing her *famous* zucchini bread recipe for you all to enjoy. xoxo

ingredients:

3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups pealed and grated zucchini
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons cinnamon

directions:

beat eggs until light and foamy. add oil, sugar, zucchini and vanilla. mix lightly but well.

mix four, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. add flour mixture to first mixture and blend. (may add chopped nuts, about 1/2 cup, if desired).
