  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Prepare two loaf pans with cooking spray.
  2. Mix the eggs, vegetable oil, sugar, zucchini, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl; add the raisins.

I cut this recipe back to 12 servings and made muffins out of the batter. Instead of vegetable oil, I used melted butter. I cut the melted butter by half and substituted homemade applesauce for the other half. I also increased the baking powder/baking soda and cinnamon to a teaspoon each and I used organic raisins. Very good zucchini bread recipe--very moist and slightly chewy. We really liked the cinnamon sugar topping but there needed to be a little more. We'll increase it next time. I think I'll add a half cup of pecans next time, too, as one of the other reviewer's suggested.

This was delicious!!! I made so many batches and gave them to friends and family. They all loved them!!! And now i have tons of people asking for the recipe. However I didnt add the raisins ... I've never been a big raisin fan. And i added more cinnamon. Also i made a batch with walnuts which was also very yummy :)

Excellent - other than making muffins instead of bread I didn't, and wouldn't, change a thing. Just right cinnamon flavor - neither too heavily spiced nor too sweet. Loved the raisins, which contributed interest as well as flavor. My raisins were a little on the dry side but plumping them up for about 10 minutes in hot water did the trick (actually, I really liked how they turned out, all puffy and moist, and I just might do that from now on!). The simple cinnamon-sugar topping was just perfect for these muffins, which I baked at 350 degrees. This batter was so nice, and so accurate that I'll keep it in mind to substitute carrots or apples as well.

This was really good. I added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1/2 cup regular raisins and 3t. cinnamon (instead of the 1t) to the mix and it turned out perfect!

Great recipe! I left out the raisins.

Excellent zucchini recipe. Everyone loved it. I added some nutmeg with the cinnamon. I will be making this for years to come.

I actually forgot to add the topping (I know! I can't believe it!) but this bread was still yummy without it! Omitted the raisins and added chocolate chips instead. No complaints heard in this house! :)
