My Mother’s Kitchen: Zucchini Bread

This was my Mom’s favorite recipe for Zucchini Bread. She made it many times (I doubt she needed the recipe). On top of the refrigerator was 2 green index card holders and this recipe was always near the front. There wasn’t many years where we didn’t have a Zucchini plant in the yard!

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups zucchini (grated raw)
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

Bake for 60 to 75 minutes.
