Zucchini Bread

2 C. peeled and grated zucchini
3 C. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. nutmeg
3 tsp. cinnamon
3 eggs
2 C. sugar
1 C. vegetable oil
3 tsp. vanilla

1. Grate zucchini. Set aside.
2. Sift together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Set aside.
3. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs thoroughly.
4. Add oil, sugar, vanilla, zucchini, and sifted dry ingredients. Mix well.
5. Pour into greased and floured 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pans and bake 1 hour at 325 to 350 degrees, depending on your oven.
6. Remove from oven when inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let stand in pans for 5 minutes, then turn out onto wire rack to cool.

Notes: I like to add chocolate chips to my zucchini bread for a sweeter flavor.
