Recipes from Ollie J -- Zucchini Bread

I didn't include this recipe last year ... because I automatically skipped it due to the main ingredient -- the loathesome squash ... the evil Zucchini. I strongly strongly dislike zucchini. On the I HATE 'EM scale of skip-'em 'srooms to the loathe-and-gag bananas, the green squash close to the banana end of things.

However, it is one of the recipes in Grandma's box that I hadn't tried and that actually had all the ingredients and instructions. Distributed to the right office and hungry colleagues? I think they'll be appreciated.

Zucchini Bread

3 eggs beaten
2 cups sugar (1 cup brown and 1 cup white)
2 cups peeled & grated fine, zucchini squash

¾ cup oil (used olive and canola)

3 tsp. vanilla

Beat Well.

3 cups shifted flour

½ tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. soda (baking)
1 tsp. salt
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

1 cup raisins

Mix into zucchini mixture.
Bake in 2 well greased loaf pans at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes.
