Baked yesterday and thought it was ok......waited to taste again today and oh my, so moist and full of flavor. That's the secret, let it sit one day before eating. Made 3 loaves and theyweren't flat at all as someone else mentioned. Will certainly make again.

Best bread ever. It is very noisy and not too sweet. This is a keeper.

jcackler, did you use the correct size pan? Maybe that's why yours turned out a little flat.

My bread turned out really tasty. I like it's nice, light taste and like having a zucchini bread recipe that doesn't have chocolate in it. I agree with the other review in that it didn't rise a whole lot, but my loaves were still more bread like than bar like, so it wasn't a big deal. Will be making again.

Mine came out very flat -- so I ended up cutting and serving them as bars instead of bread. Still filling and tasty though.
