Michael's Red-ribbon Zucchini Bread

Michael S.

This is one of my husbands recipes. He did in fact win a Red Ribbon at the Utah State Fair (as a 4 H participant) for his zucchini bread.

3 large eggs
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups zucchini seeded and grated
3 cups flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (*see notes for using raisins instead)

Beat eggs until light and foamy.
Add sugar, oil, zucchini and vanilla.
Mix well.
Sift together dry ingredients (except chocolate chips or raisins).
Add dry mix to egg mixture.
Hand stir in chocolate or raisins.
Grease and flour 2 loaf pans.
Divide the batter between the 2 pans.
Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean.
Cool for 10 mins and remove bread from pans to finish cooling.

*1 cup raisins boiled with 1/4 cup water until liquid is absorbed (DO
NOT let boil dry).
