Pineapple Zucchini Loaf

This is a nice change from regular zucchini loaf. It has a kind of morning-glory muffin taste but is easy to make since it’s in loaf form, and of coarse, uses up more of those summer zucchinis.

Makes 2 loaves

INGREDIENTS

  • 4.5 cups flour
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg

WET INGREDIENTS

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups white sugar
  •  1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • Stir in 2.5 cups grated zucchini
  • Stir in 1 398ml can crushed pineapple, drained
  • Stir in 1 cup raisins
