Zucchini bread

3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil (or 1 cup of applesauce which is what I use)
2 cups white sugar
2 cups grates zucchini (I usually use about 2.5 or 3 cups)
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
3 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional, of course)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour two 8x4 inch loaf pans. (Sometimes I sprinkle extra white sugar on the bottom of the pans which makes a nice sugary crust.)
In large bowl, beat eggs until light and frothy. Mix in oil (applesauce) and sugar. Stir in zucchini and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine flour, cinnamon, soda, baking powder, salt and nuts; stir into the egg mixture. Divide batter into prepared pans.
Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, or until done.
