Zucchini 'Bikini' Bread.

I'm not sure why...but we can't say the word 'ZUCCHINI' in our house without a following 'BIKINI' behind it. It just sticks.

Since it's officially FALL now {in my book at least}...I decided I wanted to to whip up some Zucchini BIKINI BREAD for some of my cute friends.  
{Fall and Zucchini go hand in hand, right?} 

Warning:  This recipe is ESPECIALLY good.  Like I could have a slice for breakfast...lunch...and dinner.  It COULD be because it calls for 3 teaspoons of vanilla and 3 teaspoons of cinnamon.  
It gives it that extra dose of delicious-ness.  

When I was ready to deliver the bread...I wrapped a few loaves up in some brown kraft paper, whipped on a bow, and printed out these cute fall tags from It Is What It Is.

Make some tonight.
Zucchini's are on sale if you live locally.

Zucchini BIKINI Bread

3 eggs - beat until light
1 c. oil
2 c. sugar
2 c. grated zucchini
3 tsp. vanilla

Mix all together and then add:

1/4 tsp. baking powder
3 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3 tsp. cinnamon

Beat together and then stir in however many chocolate chips you please. 
{The chocolate chips are a MUST people}. 

Put in 2 greased bread pans and bake at 325 degrees for one hour.

*To give you an idea of how many zucchinis you'll need...I grated 4 whole ones and I was able to double my recipe.  Out of that I got: 3 large loaves and 4 small loaves.
