Zucchini Bread

Preheat oven to 350 F

Combine dry ingredients:
3 C flour
2 t cinnamon
½ t nutmeg
1 t baking soda
½ t baking powder
½ t salt

Combine separately in a large bowl:
2 C sugar
2 C shredded zucchini
½ C vegetable oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 t vanilla
2 t molasses
One pinch or two of lemon zest
1 C of chopped nuts (optional)
Mix dry ingredients into the second bowl of wet ingredients and stir until combined, fold in the nuts.  The recipe makes two 8x4 loaves, grease the loaf pans and pour in the batter.
Bake in 350F oven for 50-60 minutes, until a knife inserted near the center, comes out clean.  Let the loaves cool in the pans for 10 minutes and then remove loaves to a cooling rack.   Enjoy!
