Saturdays in the Garden: Pina Colada Zucchini Bread

I wish I could tell you that this one is healthy.

You know...with all that zucchini and stuff. 
But it is really, really good.
And it's not your mom's zucchini bread.

Pina Colada Zucchini Bread

4 c flour
3 c sugar
2 t baking powder
1 1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
4 eggs
1 1/2 c canola oil (no, that is not a typo! LOL)
1 t each coconut, rum and vanilla extracts
3 c shredded zucchini (remove peel if you want to "hide" it from the kids)
1 c canned crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 c chopped walnuts (or pecans...but I'm liking the walnuts)

Line the bottoms of three greased and floured loaf pans with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. In another bowl, combine eggs, oil and extracts. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in zucchini, pineapple and walnuts. Transfer to prepared pans. Bake 350' for 45-55 min. Use the toothpick test. Cool for 10 min before removing from pans to wire racks. Gently remove waxed paper. 

I also wish I could remember where I got this so 
that I could give proper credit where it's due!

Yum....I may have to try this variation as I love pina coladas!
And bet it is good (and healthy) with a cup of coffee!
