With all the zucchinis I had to make some sweet bread.  While I like most recipes for this bread, this might be my favorite.  The  secret spice in these loaves is 'nutmeg'.  This is a very easy recipe and I promise you will enjoy it!

(Copied from:  Ste. Genevieve Plain Good Cookin Recipes)

2 cups grated summer squash
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, beaten
I cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup pecans (or more if you like)

Mix sugar, eggs, oil, salt, baking powder, soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Add squash and mix well.
Stir in flour and pecans and blend well.  Pour into well greased 8X4 inch loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until the top springs back when lightly touched.  Remove and cool on racks. 
Yeild: 2 loaves.

I hope you enjoy!
