Zucchini Bread

Remember my monster zucchini?  Well, I decided to try a new zucchini bread recipe.  I really like this one.

3 eggs
1/2 c. oil
1/2 c. vanilla yogurt (or plain)
1 c. brown sugar
2 c. shredded zuchinni
2 tsp vanilla
3 c. flour
3 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. pumpkin spice
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. soda

Beat eggs until frothy.  Add the oil and yogurt.  Add brown sugar and zucchini and beat until smooth.  Add vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, spice, soda, powder and salt.  Stir in flour.  Mix until smooth.  Grease and flour 2 8x4 bread pans.  Bake at 325 degrees for 50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes before you try to remove it from the pan.

What I love about this recipe is the subtle flavoring.  It's not as strong as other breads.  It also isn't as heavy as other quick breads. If you like the stronger flavors, you can add more spices and up the sugar.  It tastes great fresh out of the oven slathered with some butter. =)  If you want to add chocolate chips, go for it!  I think next time I am going to add some nuts. =)
