Reviews for Pina Colada Zucchini Bread
"I just made this tonight and it is OH SO DELICIOUS! After reading some of the reviews about the bread not getting done in the middle I decided to try muffins first. I only had to cook them about 30 minutes and they were perfect. Then I made a light glaze and drizzled over the top of the muffins. I used powdered sugar, the juice from the pineapple, the same extracts as listed in the recipe (only I used 1/4 teaspoon of each) and I had some Coconut Creme Coffee Mate and used it to thin the glaze down. Oh my! It really added to the flavor of the muffins! My husband ate 3 of them right away....and this from a man who doesn't really like sweets! I give this a 5 star rating.....and if I could it would be a 10 star!"
"This was wonderful! My husband really liked it also."
"How big is the can of pineapple?"
"After reading the reviews I made this bread and its excellent. I did bake it in silicon pans and at 325 instead of 350 for a bit longer to not experience the raw middle I saw in a review. It does taste just like a pina colada. REFRESHING! My husband loves it."
"After reading all the reviews, made it several times BUT it is ALWAYS raw in the middle whether using loaf pans or mini loaf pans. Not sure what I'm doing wrong but I end up throwing the raw middle away. It's a shame cause I really like it."
"Based on previous comments about this being a little too sweet, I went ahead and cut the sugar down to 2 c. Only other thing I did differently was make it into muffins rather than a loaf (during Texas summers, the shorter time you have the oven on, the better). This is delicious! Looking forward to making it again very soon!"
"I have been making this recipe for years. I have a request for our chritmas in Sept. so I will use the small foil loaf pans and give them to everybody"
"It was ok."
"I really like this bread. when i made it i added 1/2 cup of coconut. Everyone that i have shared the bread with have requested the recipe."
"I agree with the person who said it was way to sweet. I used applesauce in place of the oil, so you could cut the sugar in half. I would also put in more coconut flavoring. With a little tweaking,it would be excellent."
