- 4 large eggs
- 4 cups shredded zucchini with skin on
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2-1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1-1/4 cups vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 325° F. Generously grease the bottoms only of two 9x5-inch loaf pans. In a large electric mixer bowl, beat the eggs. Add the remaining ingredients without beating between additions. Beat all of the ingredients on low speed for 1 minute, scraping bowl often. Beat on medium speed another minute. Pour into pans. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes; test for doneness. Remove from oven; leave in pans for 10 minutes. Before removing from pans, take a metal spatula and gently go down sides, then underneath to middle very gently on each side. Place a cake or serving tray on top of loaf pan and invert. Place on a cool rack to cool completely before slicing.
