    Smitten Kitchen has the best recipes. This one was perfect. Nice amount of spices and perfect consistency. I used melted butter. I will add walnuts next time. My favourite loaf recipe! That and SK pumpkin bread one. (Edit: try ultimate zucchini bread by Smitten Kitchen instead. More zucchini and even better.)

    Delicious!! I followed the suggestion of another reviewer and did 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/4 oil and also replaced half the amount of regular sugar with brown sugar I also added raisins. Sweet and moist and loved by all in my house!

    Delicious, great recipe! I used 1/2 cup apple sauce and 1/4 cup vegetable oil which worked great. And the raw sugar gave it a nice flavor as well. Will definitely be making these again.

    This was my first time making this. It was easy to make and tastes great. I would probably rate it 5 stars when I have had a few more trys. I am going to make as muffins next time - should be good for lunch boxes.

    super easy - I did a blend of walnuts, raisins, and cranberries. I also made them into muffins. Also, used Italian squash instead. LOL

    Nice and buttery, I felt like it could have been a bit more flavorful. Next time I’ll go heavier on the spices.

    Pretty delicious - moist and gods flavor with the turbino sugar. I NEVER say this but could use a smudge more sugar?

    This was great with a few modifications! So good, that I gave some of it to my friends as a present :) Substitutions: Coconut oil for olive oil Mashed bananas for 1/2 of the sugar Used almond meal for 1/2 of the flour 3 cups zucchini instead of 2

    Used half whole wheat flour, half all-purpose. Added walnuts and chocolate chips. It is delicious, will make it again and again!

    Wow. Definitely in the regular weekly rotation. Great for using up juice pulp and unused spiralized veggie bits. Only thing I change is subbing 1/2 cup yogurt for 1/2 cup of the oil. Otherwise, following recipe exactly. Makes two loaves and our kids finish a loaf before its even cooled down. AMAZING.

    I have made this bread many times and it is a favorite. I make approx. 6 loafs and freeze 4. I have them to give as surprise gifts or take to work on the fly. What a treat to have with coffee on break. Plus--I enjoy sharing with my co=workers since I have no small children at home any more,
