  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a standard 8 1/2" by 4 1/2" loaf pan or use a paper loaf pan like I did.

  2. My paper loaf pans are 7.835" x 2.87" so I split the batter in two and cut down the cooking time - less time with the oven on in the summer is wise!

  3. Beat the eggs, oil, molasses, sugar, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl until smooth.

  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  5. Combine the dry ingredients into the wet. Once almost completely combined, stir in the zucchini and walnuts.
  6. Spoon the batter into the prepared pans.
  7. The bake time for 1 large loaf pan is 50 to 55 minutes,
  8. For 2 smaller loaves, bake about 25-30 min, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  9. Remove the bread from the oven, and place on a rack to cool for 20 minutes before slicing.
