Zucchini Bread Surprise

What can be better than joining a few “good for you” vegetables with tasty bread?  Pure deliciousness.  This recipe is modified from my Aunt Angela’s Zucchini Bread. You can substitute the 1 cup of carrot for zucchini if you’d like as well.  Kid friendly food indeed!  Let them eat it up, knowing they are eating something good for them!
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking powder
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups white sugar
3 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup vegetable oil -(you can also substitue 1/2 cup plain yogurt and 3/4 cup of oil)
1 1/2 cups of grated carrot
1 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 F
2. Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and baking powder.
3. Mix together eggs, sugar, vanilla, and oil. Stir zucchini into egg mixture.
4. Add dry ingredients, mixing well. Stir in nuts, if desired.
5. Pour into 2 (5x9 in) loaf pans or 4 mini loaves
6. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour.

Serve warm with a pat of butter!
