Bread so delicious you'll want to eat all of it yourself. But that's okay--it's made with zucchini, so it's gotta be healthy. Right? Right!

  • Write your review hereI followed the directions as printed except I used craisons instead of cherries. Bread was moist and delicious. When I make it again, I will use more cherries/craisons. Don't omit the lemon juice and zest. They really added to the flavor!

  • I made this with a few modifications. I used 1 cup of all purpose flour and 1 cup of wheat flower. I used mild instead of water and sugar/Splenda instead of straight sugar. It turned out really good! I have never made zucchini bread in my life and it was so easy! I highly recommend this recipe.
