G G's Zucchini Bread

Printable Recipe

Every summer my dad would plant a veggie garden in the back yard that would produce an abundance of veggies, and zucchini was one of them.  Though this recipe only uses a couple of zucchini's, its still worth making! My mom would triple up the recipe and freeze the bread so we would have some all winter.  This time I threw in a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. The fresher the zucchini, the moister your bread will come out!

  •  3 eggs
  •  1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips ( optional )

Preparation Instructions

Heat oven to 325 F. Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl. Use a mixer to beat eggs until frothy. Stir in sugars, oil, vanilla and zucchini. Set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl combine dry ingredients (flour through salt). Then stir this mixture into the zucchini mixture until well mixed. Stir in nuts. Fold in chocolate chips is using.
Pour the batter evenly into 2 well greased 9x5x3 inch pans. Bake one hour or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a loaf comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Cool before serving.
