Fancy Zucchini Bread

I love to make zucchini bread to give to friends as gifts. It is a simple yet delicious bread that can be eaten for breakfast, as a snack, or jazzed up with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce for a dessert.

Makes 2 loaves

3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 tsp cinnamon
3 eggs
1 cup canola oil
2 1/4 cup white sugar
3 tsp vanilla
1 cup grated zucchini
1 cup crushed pineapple
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cups crushed hazelnuts

Preheat oven to 325.
Combine flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon into one bowl. In a separate bowl combine the eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla. zucchini, and pineapple. Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Once well combined add the chocolate chips and nuts.

Pour into two greased and floured 4 x 8 bread tins. Bake on on 325 for about 45 minutes. It may need to cook a little longer depending on your oven. Check the middle with a toothpick to be sure its is completely baked.

Once completed remove from oven and let cool for about 10-15 minutes. Once you can safely handle the pans and bread turn them out of pans and let cool on a baking rack.

And finally ENJOY!
