Reviews for Zucchini Nut Bread
Sort By :
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!
Very good recipe.
I have a recipe I use every year for zucchini bread but this year I decided to try something different. This was good BUT it didn't have enough flavor for me. I use nutmeg in mine and it makes the bread taste great and I missed not having it in this recipe.
I have made a lot of zucchini bread and sold them at farmers markets. This is as good a recipe as I have found, Thank You for sharing.
Very good. For a healthier bread, I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups, replaced 1 cup of flour with wheat flour (2 cups white, 1 cup wheat) and used part applesauce in place of oil (about 2/3 cup applesauce and 1/3 cup oil). Also omitted the lemon peel just because I didn't have lemons on hand.
