Holiday Quick Breads

I don't make Christmas cookies any more now that my kids are adults.  I do make Christmas breads.  Very fast and much easier.

Aunt Evelyn's Zucchini Bread:

3 eggs.           1 1/2 cups sugar.           2/3 cup oil.           1 tsp cinnamon
4 tsp baking powder.            3 cups flour.           1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt.           1 tsp vanilla.            2 cups grated zucchini.  (I freeze grated zucchini in the summer when it's abundant and cheap.)

Mix all the ingredients together and mix well.  Makes 2 large or 3 smaller loaves.
Bake at 325 for about an hour.

Sharon's Pumpkin Bread:

3 cups sugar.           4 eggs.           1 tsp nutmeg.           1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp salt.            1cup oil.       1 cup pumpkin.       2/3 cup water
2 tsp baking soda.             3 cups flour

Mix all ingredients well.  Bake at 350 for about an hour.
