Zucchini Bread

This recipe is from Cathy's Mother-in-law. It's really the best zucchini bread I've ever tasted. No lie! I'm thrilled to be able to share it with you!

Here's the world famous Zucchini Bread from Mrs. Francis. It's very moist & delicious.

3 cups sugar
1 cup oil (I have also done 2/3 cup oil and 1/3 cup applesauce)
2 cups shredded zucchini
4 eggs
3 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups raising (optional)

Heat oven to 350. Spray 2 loaf pans with baking spray or grease/flour as you normally do. Mix first 3 ingredients together. Add eggs one at a time. Add blended dry ingredients. Fold in raisins, if using. Bake one hour or more until cake tests for doneness.

You can easily double this recipe or cut it in half!
