Mom's Zucchini Bread

My mom was not a good every day cook (she'd agree!), but she did have some great recipes in recipe box and boy, when she made these, we all were happy!

Here's one of my favorites: Zucchini Bread. Copied directly from the old, stained, index card from her at least 50 year old recipe file.

2 eggs
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups grated zucchini
3 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons cinnamon

Grease and flour pans.
Beat eggs, oil, sugar, zucchini, vanilla, together until creamy. Sift dry ingredients, add to creamed mixture. Bake at 325 1 hour.
Makes 2 loaves.

(Now, since I saw her make these many, many times, and I now have her pans, I know she used glass loaf pans. I also know that she never sifted the dry ingredients!)
