Zucchini Muffins

This fall, my mother in law started making a new relish using zucchini as the base. It's soooo good. So we started a batch for me yesterday. We had loads of zucchini and I shredded a bunch to freeze for baking.
I thought I'd use some while it was fresh and made some muffins. The recipe is actually for loaves, but things tend to taste better when they're in a muffin paper ... dontcha think?

Combine (blending after each addition) ...
3 eggs
1 cup salad oil
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups grated & peeled zucchini
1 cup crushed pineapple (drain off juice)
1 cup raisins
1 cup walnuts (optional)

In another bowl, combine ...
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups flour

Mix wet & dry ingredients until well blended.

Bake in 325 degree oven for 1 1/2 hour.
(20-25 minutes for muffins)
