A favorite recipe that I have been making for over 30 years. There is a new mom down the street and I may take her a loaf later in the day.
3 cups of flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 tespoon salt
1/2 teaspon baking powder
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (I usually add more)
2 cups sugar (I add a little more)
1 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups shredded zuchinni (I just chop mine)
1 (8 oz can crushed pineapple, well drained (I think this is what makes it so GOOD)
Combine first 5 ingredients and set aside
Beat eggs lightly in a large mixing bowl, add sugar, oil and vanilla, beat until creamy. Stir in zuchinni and pineapple. Add dry ingredients, stirring only until moistened.
Spoon batter into 2 large loaf pans or 3 smaller ones (this is what I use since it is a nice size to share with someone) Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until done. Cool 10 minutes in pan, turn out and continue to cool completely on wire rack..
I might add that the morning has been great until I just read my daughters post. Click on BlondeMomBlog on blogs I like to read.
