Mom's Zucchini Bread

3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup applesauce
2 cups grated zucchini
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup nuts, raisins, or chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Grease two 9x5x3 loaf pans.

Combine eggs, sugar, vanilla, oil, and applesauce. Mix well. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, mix briefly. Add the zucchini and nuts (or raisins or chips) and mix well.

Divide between the pans and bake for 50 minutes. Remove from oven when a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes in pans. Turn loaves out of pans and allow to cool completely.

Quick breads are always best served the next day. For best results, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
