Favorite Christmas RecipeThursday, December 18, 2008
I think my favorite Christmas recipe of all time is my great aunt's zucchini bread.
It might not sound very appetizing, but it is so good, especially for breakfast with cream cheese spread over it. Not very healthy, but who eats healthy at Christmastime?
Aunt Mil's Zucchini Bread
3 eggs (beaten until light and fluffy)
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups peeled and grated zucchini (seeds and all)
3 tsps. vanilla
3 cups flour
3 tsps. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins (light California)
Mix thoroughly and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Makes enough batter for two bread tin loaves.
