ZUCCHINI BREAD

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup shredded unpeeled zucchini
1/3 cup Carnation evaporated milk (undiluted)
1/3 cup water
3 tbsp. vegetable oil (or melted butter)
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla
1/2 tsp. pure almond extract (optional)
1/2 cup shredded almonds*


Preheat oven to 325°F.
Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan. Lightly dust with flour and tap out any excess.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.

In a separate bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Add grated zucchini, milk, water, oil or melted butter and vanilla.

Pour liquid ingredients into the dry mixture and stir well using a wooden spoon, mixing just until blended. Transfer batter to prepared loaf pan and spread evenly.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (about 60-70 minutes).

*Variation: Use chopped walnuts, pecans, shelled pistachios or macadamia nuts instead of almonds. Or semi-sweet or white chocolate morsels, butterscotch or peanut butter chips can be added (up to 1 cup).

I have also made several batches and froze some for later. I always save one for Christmas morning.
