2 C  Sugar
3 tsp  Vanilla
3 C  Flour
1 tsp  Salt
1 tsp  Baking Soda
½  tsp  Baking Powder
3 tsp  Cinnamon
2 tsp  Nutmeg* (I added nutmeg, because I like it w/ cinnamon)
1 C  Nuts (optional)
butter & 2 tsp flour to prep 2 loaf pans

Preheat oven to 350°.  Prepare 2 loaf pans, by greasing them with butter and dusting them with flour. 
Combine the following dry ingredients in a large bowl:  flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda,
salt and nuts (I used pecans).  Whisk together.

In a small bowl, beat eggs until light and foamy.  In a large mixing bowl, add:  oil, sugar, zucchini,
egg and vanilla.  Mix well.
  Mix the flour mixture into the wet ingredients.  Mix well.

Pour the batter into the 2 prepped loaf pans & bake @ 350° for 1 hour.
