Zucchini Bread

Check out the size of these zucchini's!

What do you with a GIGANTIC zucchini?
Well, you make zucchini bread of course. A local around here in Maryland gave these to me. I don't know what he has in his soil, but these were the biggest vegetables I have ever seen in my life!
The bread is delicious too!!

2 loaves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, nutmeg, baking soda, cinnamon and sugar. In a separate bowl, combine oil, eggs, water, zucchini and lemon juice. Mix wet ingredients into dry, add nuts and fold in. Bake in 2 standard loaf pans, sprayed with nonstick spray, for 1 hour, or until a tester comes out clean. Alternately, bake in 5 mini loaf pans for about 45 minutes.
