I like this bread because it's lighter and fluffier than most zucchini breads. Plus, it's a great way to put that abundant vegetable to good use!—Kevin Bruckerhoff, Columbia, Missouri

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 14, 2014

"I love this recipe. Very light and moist. Did not add lemon zest (didn't have a lemon) but I did add a fourth teaspoon of ground cloves (I've always added ground cloves to my zucchini bread recipe) it really makes the flavor pop. Of all the zucchini bread recipes I've tried, this one is the best by far."
