Zucchini Bread

Nowadays, my hands are on baking. Baking is altogether a new experience for me, the smell makes so appetizing.
whenever I shop for groceries get confused with Zucchini and cucumber unless I see the name. But, you can't replace one with the other. Zucchini is rough, dry and little bitter.

1/2 cup walnuts(toasted and chopped)
1 cup grated raw zucchini (1-2 zucchini)
1/2 cup peeled and grated raw apple
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the loaf with canola oil and keep aside.
Grate the zucchini with medium size, and then peel and grate the apple.
In a Medium bowl mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, and nutmeg.
In the Large bowl beat the oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well blended for about 2 min. Beat in the grated zucchini and apple. Add the flour mixture, beat until combined. Then fold in the nuts. Transfer the batter into the greased loaf and bake until the bread has risen and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 to 60 minutes. Place the bread on wire rack to cool down.
