Absolutely wonderful!!!, Member milaneyjane

My family was about to boycott if I made one more zucchini recipe that called for cinnamon. All the breads, muffins and cakes tasted the same. This recipe is just superb. My kids looked at the zucchini in tears but literally were dancing around the kitchen as soon as they tasted a bite of the still warm bread. Because I am always trying to tweak recipes with my kids, I substituted half the flour for whole wheat, and cut the sugar down to 3/4 c. I may even try to cut it down to 1/2 c. next time. Also, I made a double batch and just added all the zest from a whole lemon, so I probably doubled the amout of zest called for. The bread comes out with a sweet crust on it, and the lemon.....heaven. I think it would make wonderful muffins!
