MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 26, 2014

I'm surprised this received such high reviews. My family was unimpressed with this bread. Not a lot of flavor and really nothing special.

This is about the only kind of zuccini bread i make! My husband never wants anything different.

Hint: 1 fresh lemon is what you need for the juice and zest.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 25, 2012

My kids and I absolutely LOVE this recipe! I have made this several times now. I have made a few changes though: I use either french or regular instant vanilla (vs. lemon) pudding. Instead of 1.5 c. sugar, I use 1/2 c. sugar & 1 c. brown sugar. Instead of 4 c. flour, I use 3 c. flour & 1 c. whole wheat flour. I use 3 c. (vs. just 2 c.) shredded zucchini. Also--instead of making two 9x5" loaves, I place the entire batter into a large bundt cake pan (sprayed heavily with Pam) and bake at 350 degrees for a good 55-65 minutes (or until knife comes out clean). This is so moist and delicious - LOVE the addition of the poppyseeds too! My kids gobble up this bread/cake in no time!

Mmm so good! Just the right flavor of lemon-froze the other loaf.

This was really easy and it made two big loaves. It was very moist. I have one loaf in the freezer and I will probably make a little glaze for it when I use it as someone suggested.
