    Dee514's Note:

    I have hesitated to post this recipe because there are so many zucchini cake/bread recipes already posted here. However, since I have retired from "semi-commercial" baking, I thought I would start posting some of "those secret" recipes. This recipe won 2 blue ribbons for me at the tri-county Altamont Fair in 1987.

      Awesome flavor, but a little too sweet, and didn't raise well. I may drop the sugar by 1/2 cup, and add 1/4 cup more flour. Love the flavor!! Very moist. I did sqeeze moisture out of zucchini, but seemed too wet.
