Zucchini Walnut Bread

1 cup of walnuts
4 eggs
2 cups of granulated sugar*
1 cup of vegetable oil
3 1/2 cups of un-sifted all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon of baking powder
2 cups of grated zucchini
1 cup raisins
1 teaspoon of vanilla
* you may use 3/4 cup of honey instead of sugar. You may also use whole wheat flour. Chop the walnuts into medium size pieces. Beat the eggs. Gradually beat in the sugar or honey, then oil. Combine the dry ingredients. Add to the first mixture, alternately with zucchini. Stir in the raisins, walnuts and vanilla. Turn into 2 greased and lightly floured loaf pans 9 x 5 x 2 3/4 inches. Bake on lowest rack at 350ºF. for about 55 minutes, until loaves test done. Let it stand for about 10 minutes, turn out onto wire rack to cool. This bread also freezes well.
