Zucchini Bread - Mary's Recipe Box


I'm starting a new series today. It's called "Mary's Recipe Box." All the recipes come from my mom's beloved recipe box that I inherited when she died 15 years ago. It is a handy harvest gold file holder that attached to the bottom of an upper cabinet.

I'm going to randomly pick something from the box each Friday. So, here it goes! No cheating, I promise.

Zucchini Bread

2 cups of sugar
3 eggs
Beat together and add
1 cup oil
3 cups of flour
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond
2 cups grated zucchini

Bake for 1 hour at 325 in a greased loaf pan.

This is the same recipe I always use. Well, except for the almond flavoring. It was the recipe my grandma & mom used.

Fun idea Suzanne! I have my mom's old recipe box. I believe it is a Longaberger basket. Maybe I'll start doing some of the same if you don't mind! It would be fun to go through it again!!
