Zucchini Chip Loaves Recipe

This bread has won many ribbons at our fall fair. The recipe yields two nicely spiced loaves—one for eating and one for sharing. I like to make it for family and friends. —Chantelle Ross, Forest Grove, British Columbia

"Very good and easy to make. I halved the recipe to make one loaf, which my young family of five demolished within hours."

"I have been making this recipe throughout the zucchini season this year and it is a winner. I omit the raisins and add 1 cup chopped walnuts. You can also sub the chocolate chips for blueberries or another fruit and it is wonderful. I usually add more like 3 cups of zucchini as I had large zucchini. For the person with trouble with the loaves sticking in the pan, try spraying them with Pam spray with flour or grease and flour them. They pop right out!"

"This bread is so good and moist. But,I had a terrible time removing breads from the pans! I did what it said,greasing pans and waiting 10 minutes to cool before removing. Wonder if it is my pans....they are heavy weight aluminum. I always seem to have this problem...not just with this bread. I have used parchment paper in the pans before,but not fond of doing that. Help!"

"This is remarkable. I had to use gluten free flours and it still came out moist and delicious. I didn't add the chocolate chips to this first loaf, but may try it with the 2nd. I did add the raisins. This bread will make Starbucks bakery go out of business. Excellent!!!!"

"Very moist and tastes wonderful! I left out the raisins; used 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce and 1/2 cup oil; and substituted 1/2 whole wheat flour for the all-purpose."

"I made this receipe minus the raisins and put in mini loaf pans for a cookie/candy exchange. It went over well. It was very moist and had a very good flavor with the added spices. I am definitely going to make it again, since I can't keep my husband away from the extra mini loaves."
