Zucchini Bread ( The Special One with Raisins)

3 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground Saigon cinnamon
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 cup mashed Zucchini's*
1/2 cup Special Raisens*
1 cup vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1/4 cup yogurt-vanilla
2 pats butter (for greasing pan)
Once in a pan, lightly sprinkle freshly zested lemon across the top.

Bake in a Bread Pan, well buttered or greased....Sometimes I like to use Light Virgin Olive Oil. ( there is also PAM Spray that works great). I prefer Glass pans, less stickiness for some reason. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

About the Zucchini, 2 or 3 zucchini's peeled and mashed and preheat in the microwave, with a bit of butter, and salt, slight.

About the Raisins, I soak them overnight in Hot Buttered Rum Flavoring ( or you could use real Rum just as well) and Orange Juice, and a bit of Blueberry Juice is nice too. In the Fall Apple Cider. Let them soak until they are good and Plump.

( If you ever want to try something different, shredded coconut is really nice too....instead of the lemon zest on the top...)
If I am going to make Bread...any kind..I need the right music...Blues...or R&B...or Soul....So to accompany this I put the Neville Brothers with this receipe...just click the title.....( song is" Fearless."..really haunting song...I think it is about NOLA )......
