This bread is incredible!! I can't believe no one has reviewed it yet! Some of the ingredients may seem a little strange, but this delightful bread comes out so sweet and moist, rather cake-like. The zucchini is not noticable other than to add pleasant little green confetti-like specks in the bread. I have been eating this bread for years and there is just about no wrong way to make it (except omitting the maple flavoring, that's a sin). Enjoy this great autumn spice bread! Read More
