Delicious Apple Zucchini Bread

Servings: Makes 2 loaves, 16 slices per loaf
This apple-zucchini bread is really a very delicious combination of fruit and produce. The honey in it gives it a wonderful flavor.
This honey-sweetened bread will give you a chance to use some of that abundant zucchini crop this year.

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
1 cup shredded apple
1 cup shredded zucchini
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

1. Grease the bottoms and about 1/2 inch up the sides of two 8 x 4 x 2-inch loaf pans. Set the pans aside.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

3. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs. Stir in sugar, oil and honey. Stir in apple, zucchini and vanilla. Fold in the flour mixture till just moistened (don't overmix). Fold in the nuts, if you like. Spoon the batter into the prepared pans.

4. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 50 to 55 minutes or till a wooden toothpick inserted near center of each loaf comes out clean. Cool loaves in the pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Loosen the edges and remove the loaves from pans. Cool completely on the wire racks. Makes 2 loaves, 16 servings per loaf.
