Zucchini Chocolate Chip Bread

My Favorite Zucchini Bread Recipe

This recipe was given to me by one of my neighbors. After my husband and I got married we moved into a trailer on a piece of land his parents had given us. Across the street lived another couple who rented from our other neighbors, who were farmers. Long story short, she on occasion would bring us over homemade treats. This neighbor had two young children already and I would look after them as a neighborly favor. We would all take turns making extra when we cooked or baked and would often use the delivery of goods as an excuse to visit each other. It was a nice habit that she started and one I still continue to practice even though her family has moved away.

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Bread

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1 ½ tsp. vanilla
3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
¾ tsp. baking powder
1 ½ tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup walnuts, chopped and roasted (optional)
1 cup raisins (optional)
1 cup chocolate chips (shaken in 1 tbsp flour, helps to prevent sinking)
