Reviews for Cinnamon Zucchini Bread
"I use 2 whole eggs instead of just the egg whites, and mine turns out great, not dry at all."
"While this bread initially seemed a little dry, I agree with abbie that over time it became more moist. I added 1/2 cup quick cooking oats and it was fabulous!"
"This bread is the best zucchini bread I have ever made! I used my homemade, very low sugar applesauce and reduced the amount of sugar it called for by even more, and it turned out wonderfully! It gets moister as it gets older too."
"I made this bread and it was good, but a little dry."
