A very moist flavorful zucchini bread. A great way to use up all that zucchini in the garden.

This recipe turned out great! It was very moist and the really liked the taste of the pineapple and coconut in it. However next time I will substitute apple sauce for the oil and see how that turns out. 1 cup oil I thought was a lot of oil!! Read More

I substituted apple sauce for the oil in this recipe and halved the sugar. Everything else I followed to the letter. Although the loaf looks beautiful and golden in the pan it's taste is bland and very mild. Next time I will a tiny bit more salt butter flavoring and more cinnamon. Moist and dense with a very nice texture. Read More

This is some really good zucchini bread! I didn't drain the pineapple that great so mine was SUPER moist a little too moist but that was my fault. The flavor though is awesome. I was out of pumpkin pie spice so I just used 1/2 teaspoon each nutmeg and ginger. My kids loved it too:) Read More

This is an awesome recipe!!! Great flavours that aren't overpowering. VERY moist! I had a small problem... not with the recipe with my zucchini. When I grated up my zucchini I didn't have quite 3 cups so I grated up a carrot to make up the difference. Turned out great! This is a keeper!!! Read More

The best! I did what a few suggested: 1-squeeze the excess water from the zucchini 2-at least double the spices 3-add an extra 1/4 teaspoon of salt 4- use 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp coconut extract. Then a couple of my own: 1- forget the sour cream 2- forget the oil completely 3- when you drain the pineapple reserve the juice 4- replace the oil with 1/4 cup pineapple juice and 3/4 cup coconut cream (available at Trader Joe's). These are HUGE calorie reducers and add a lot of flavor. 5- I also used half whole wheat and half all purpose flour 6- toast the coconut before adding (I used 3/4 cup). I will be making this again......real soon! Read More

Amazing! I added extra spices and used 1/2c. applesauce and 1/2c. oil. Made a oatmeal/brown sugar/ butter mix. to put on top prior to baking which made it wonderul. You will have to bake this a little longer than suggested otherwise the middle will come out gooey! Great recipe SuzyQ thanks for sharing! Read More

Tropical flavors are subtle yet still a nice option from traditional zucchini bread. I would up amount of coconut or add some pineapple & coconut flavoring next time. This made three loaves instead of two for me. Read More
