I tried this recipe yesterday for our American Legion picnic and it was a big hit. Everybody enjoyed it. I had some left over. It was very good. Thanks for having it on the site.

A friend of mine gave me some zucchini from her garden and I always make zucchini bread or muffins. I needed a change and this fit the bill. My mom used to make this for us kids, so I thought I would try it out on mine. Even the pickiest of eaters ate every bite. Thanks for a great way to get my kids to eat zucchini.
