This lightened-up bread features a crunchy crust and delectable taste. Our pros achieved the moist center Nancy Skramsted of Billings, Montana was looking for. And it definitely tastes delicious, even though more than half the fat and over a third of the calories went missing from the original.
Adriene Lujbli stirs grated zucchini into this no-fuss loaf. "I fix it whenever my family wants something chocolaty," notes the Gilboa, New York baker. "Try it in your bread machine if it has a quick bread setting," she says.
