  1. Boy that looks like one hearty bread. Yum

  2. Oh, it's been far too long since I baked a good loaf cake! Zucchinis aren't quite in season here, but at least they're cheaper than bananas, so I think I could justify it ;)

  3. jane, it's hearty and sweet and moist and delicious. too delicious. i think i gained 5 pounds this summer from my baked zucchini treats!=)

    hannah, i'd never made loaf cakes before these and now i can't stop! help!=)

    my sister makes a scrumptious banana bread. a local market sells their ripe bananas dirt cheap. you've reminded me that i need to get her recipe asap.

  4. i'm printing this now...hoping egg replacer will work, let me know if you don't think it will!

  5. rick, i don't see why it wouldn't, though it may change the flavor a bit. if you do try it, please let me know how it works for you!

  6. I love zucchini bread but never made it before! I think I'll give this recipe a try!

  7. Oh, how I LOVE zucchini bread!!! I make a gluten free one that is amazing!! I have a HUGE zucchini plant growing in my garden this year!! I even named it!!! LOL Hopefully we will have lots of them to make some bread!!!

  8. i love zucchini bread - without nuts, please. :)
