This recipe is from my aunt. I’m not sure how old it is but looks like a classic to me.

2 C. sugar
1/2 C. raisins
1/2 C. chopped nuts
2 C. medium shredded zucchini
1 C. oil
1 t. vanilla
3 eggs
2 1/2 C. flour
1 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. cloves

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 15×10 inch jelly roll pan. Combine sugar, raisins, nuts, zucchini, oil vanilla and eggs. Blend well by hand. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients and then combine with moist ingredients. Pour into a greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes. Cool completely. Frost with a powdered sugar frosting. (I used the Butter Cream Frosting from this site and it went very well together).

I always try to cut the fat when I can and so I used 1/2 C. oil and 1/2 C. applesauce in these bars and they turned out fine, couldn’t tell a difference.

I used an Air-Bake jelly roll pan and I think I baked it about 28 minutes but wished I would have gone a little longer. As it cooled, there seemed to be a saggy part in the very middle that wasn’t all the way done.
