We've had this bread on several occasions. This time, I decided to swap the carrots for zucchinis. Just as tasty!

1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 canola oil

1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini or carrots (6 ounces)
1/2 cups raisins

In a large bowl, beat brown sugar, granulated sugar and oil for 1 minute. Scrape bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a small bowl, mix together whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Stir into sugar mixture until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in carrots, raisins, and pecans.

Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
