“Grate” Zucchini Bread

¾ cup whole wheat flour
¾ cup unbleached white flour
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
1 egg white
1 whole egg
3/8 cup (6 tablespoons) vegetable oil
1 ¼ cups packed, finely grated unpeeled zucchini (about 1 medium)
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup finely chopped nuts
1/3 cup raisins

In a large bowl combine flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and all spices. In a smaller bowl, mix eggs, oil, zucchini, and vanilla. Add the latter to the former and combine well. Mix in nuts and raisins. Pour batter in greased loaf pan (will work in muffin pans, but stays moister as a loaf). Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
