Grandma's Zucchini Bread

This is the BEST zucchini bread ever, of course it is a recipe from my Grandmother. Grandma recipes are the best...maybe not the most nutritious, but definitely taste the best! These usually don't last long in our home. Last year I made two sets of double the recipe, froze them and then gave away as Christmas gifts to the kids teachers and neighbors.

Grandma's Zucchini Bread
3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups grated zucchini
1- 8 1/2 oz can crushed pineapple
3 cups flour
2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp nutmeg
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
1 cup raisins or dried cranberries

Beat eggs, oil, sugar, and vanilla until thick. Add remaining ingredients and stir in. Pour into loaf pans. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.

I bake in smaller pans and it takes 40 minutes for medium size and 35 minutes or less for real small. May substitute 1/2 cup applesauce for half the oil.
