Zucchini Bread

From: a hybrid between my mom, my aunt mollie, my BFF beth

2 eggs
1/2 c oil
1 c granulated sugar
1 c grated zucchini
1/2 t lemon juice
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 c chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 t salt
1/8 t baking powder
1-1/2 c whole wheat flour (or substitute all purpose flour)
2 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t baking soda

-Preheat oven to 350

-Grease loaf pan

-In a large bowl, BEAT eggs until light and frothy

-MIX in oil and sugar

-STIR in zucchini, lemon and vanilla

-COMBINE flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg, salt, nuts

-STIR into egg mixture

-BAKE 45 minutes

MY NOTES: I combined my friend, beth's, recipe and my mom's - which was already a combination of her own and my aunt mollie's. I have to say, this turned out to be the best zucchini bread I ever wrapped my lips around! I added five more minutes to the bake time but that will vary no matter where you are. I also adjusted many of the measurements bc the original recipes were for two loaves and I only have one loaf pan. So instead of halfing quarter measurements I rounded up or rounded down.
