"This is a really great zucchini bread recipe. Adding the lemon zest is a must - it gives so much brightness and enhances all the flavors of the bread!"
"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."
"This a vey good zucchini bread recipe, it's a keeper and will make again."
"Delicious How long would you bake four mini loaves?"
"I have made this recipe many, many times and the lemon zest really adds to the recipe. I have had several requests for the recipe after serving this wonderful loaf!"
