Carrot Zucchini Bread

"When my husband became diabetic, many of the treats he enjoyed were off-limits," recalls Edna Bright of Paris, Illinois. "This moist flavorful bread satisfies his sweet tooth...and I like it, too."

    The taste was good. However, there is TOO much baking powder which makes it collapse. Going to try 1 teaspoon next time and will re-rate at that time.

    I baked as directed and these turned out as flat as could be. Any suggestions? I used the tablespoon of baking powder and it wasn't expired- so, no other clues! Tasted great, though!!
