Step 1: Ingredients
- 3 eggs
- 1 glass of sugar
- 1/2 glass sunflower (or olive) oil
- 2 glass of flour
- 2 galsses of grated zucchini (about 1/2 kilo)
- 2-4 teaspoons cinnamon

Ingredients for glaze:
- 1/2 cup sugar powder
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- bread baking form
- electric whisk or mixer
- peeler and knife

Step 2: Grate Zucchini
Take your zucchini and wash it under running water. Cut off ends from both sides and peel it of. Slice zucchini in several pieces. It will be easier to hold zucchini while you grate it.
Crack three eggs into the bowl and pour in sugar. Whisk this until sugar is well combined. Then pour in sunflower oil and whisk it again.
Now add grated zucchini and stir again everything well.
Step 3: Making the Batter
In the other bowl put flour, cinnamon, soda, baking powder, salt and vanilla sugar. Mix it well and slowly with tablespoon.
Little by little pour dry ingredients mixture into bowl with eggs, sugar, sunflower oil and zucchini. Mix it with electric whisker until it's well combined and you don't have any dry spots.
After this, put dried cranberries ant mix batter again.
Step 4: Baking
Take bread baking form and grease all inside with oil. It's necessary if you don't want to burn the bread. Then pour the batter gently into the baking form.
Bake the bread in the oven at 200 C for about 50-60 minutes. Insert toothpick into the middle. It should come out clean when it's done. If it's still "wet", reduce tmperature to 100 C and bake more for about 10-15 minutes.
Let it cool on a rack for 5-10 minutes once it's out of the oven. Then pour some sugar powder or lemon juice glaze.
