  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and baking powder. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the zucchini, pineapple, pecans, raisins, dates and cherries.

Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until bread pulls away from sides of pans and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: 2 loaves.

"This was so good. I used fresh cherries instead of marchino and didnt add the dates. It was easy enough for my 11 year old to make and it turned out moist and scrumptious!!"
