Heavenly Zucchini Bread Recipe

I somehow managed NOT to overplant the zucchini this year so am just now getting around to making zucchini bread. I had a zucchini bread recipe I liked well enough but just felt like experimenting a bit this afternoon. The primary differences is that this has more than double the sugar, so it’s much more like a dessert. Less baking soda and less cinnamon. Oh, and this one says to beat the eggs well before adding anything else. It came out fantastically light and delicious. I got it from one of those “community” cookbooks, the old-fashioned blog-sharing I guess. Real people cooking real recipes! I always leave the nuts out because my girls don’t like them, but add 1 cup of chopped nuts if you’d like. I think the next time I’ll try my “less sugar” recipe but beat the eggs well first, which I’ve not done before.
