My Best Zucchini Bread

Zucchini bread is yet another great way to use surplus Zucchini or other summer squash. As usual, I had quite a surplus so I experimented with different recipes and also varied recipes to see what I liked best. This particular recipe is my favorite and is also well liked by my family and friends. It is tasty, very moist and has loads of fiber.


3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups shredded zucchini, packed
1 cup shredded carrots
3 cups flour
1 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins

Beat 3 eggs. Add vegetable oil and brown sugar. Beat together until smooth. Mix in flour, baking soda, baking power, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt. Add everything else and mix well.

Pour into 2 greased bread pans and bake at 350°F until done - about an hour. Use the toothpick test.
