    I'm with redhen, what recipe are you using? I've never made zucchini bread, but I sure do love it when others bake.

    I found this delicious one on http://www.allrecipes.com and it is SO easy!

    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    3 eggs
    1 cup vegetable oil
    2 1/4 cups white sugar
    3 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 cups grated zucchini
    1 cup chopped walnuts

    1. Grease & flour two 8x4 inch pans. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C)
    2. Sift flour, salt, baking powder, soda and cinnamon together in a bowl
    3. Beat eggs, oil, vanilla and sugar together in a large bowl. Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture, and beat well. Stir in zucchini and nuts until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.
    4. Bake for 40-60 minutes or until tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack for 20 minutes. Remove bread from pan and completely cool.

    Prep time: 20 minutes. Ready in 1 hour 40 minutes. Servings: 24

    That is the EXACT recipe I used, and I also got it from the same website....allrecipes.com! I left out the walnuts because I didn't have any. Very nice texture and delicious!

    It's so rewarding using your own eggs and veggies!

    I love allrecipes.com. I think its my favorite recipe site, along with King Arthur Flour.

    Looks like a very good recipe!

    if you want the bread super moist, add a large box of vanilla pudding and increase oil to 1 1/2 cups. DELICIOUS!!!!
