Ahhhh….the beginning of another weekend. Gracie and I spent a few hours at Barnes & Noble today while Jeff was attending a meeting. We got tea and frappuccinos and pizza-stuffed pretzels and looked at magazines and books. Always a nice way to relax and ease into Friday.

Here’s a yummy, tried and true recipe for zucchini bread. The lovely, spicy scent of this bread baking reminds me of waking up in a little country B&B and going downstairs for a romantic breakfast. This is how I’ve been making my zucchini bread for years. I never add chopped nuts, or chocolate chips or dried fruit to mine, but if that’s your cup of tea, fold in a cup or two when you’re done mixing up the batter.

3 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup light olive oil

1 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 cups (packed) grated zucchini, unpeeled

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

3 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of ground cloves

1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray two 8 x 4 loaf pans.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, oil, sugars, zucchini and vanilla until well mixed. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix, using a wooden spoon, until just combined and the ingredients are evenly incorporated. Divide the batter between the two loaf pans. Place in preheated oven and bake 60 minutes or just until a wooden skewer comes clean when inserted into the center of the loaves.

Enjoy!
