This is a great variation on zucchini bread that disappeared before my eyes! I made this exactly as posted. However, I will probably use a large loaf pan next time. There was quite a bit of batter, and when I poured it into the prepared pan, it filled it all the way to the the top. During baking, it overflowed the pan, resulting in a sort of "muffin top" on the side of the pan. No worries, though, because we ate that too! Definitely a recipe to be made again. Thanks for sharing!
