Pineapple Zucchini Bread with Pecans and Raisins

This moist, tender bread is a nice accompaniment to a Thanksgiving meal. But slices are also good for breakfast or a coffee break. Bake the batter in smaller pans for little loaves that are the perfect size for a bake sale.—Jen Stutts, Florence, Alabama

    I got this recipe from a co-worker but she also had 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 teaspoon salt instead of 1/2 and used golden raisins. she also used walnuts instead of pecans. I used heavy syrup or light pineapple for a little more flavor. always number one at my house.

    I used Walnuts instead of Pecans. Everyone who has tasted it loves it.

    One of the best quick breads I've had. It will be my go-to zucchini bread. I made it without the raisins and pecans for my picky eaters.
