Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 eggs -- slightly beaten
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 t. orange zest
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
3/4 cup orange juice
2 cups finely shredded unpeeled zucchini
1 cup shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 350. Grease two 8 x 4 x 2-inch loaf pans (9 inch loaf pans are a little too big).

In a medium bowl, combine eggs, sugar, oil, and orange peel. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture and orange juice alternately to egg mixture. Stir just until combined after each addition. Stir in zucchini and coconut. Spoon batter into prepared pans.

Bake in a 350 degree oven about 55 minutes. Cool bread in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks. Wrap and store bread overnight before slicing.

Makes 2 loaves (32 slices)
