    MoreWithLessMom's Note:

    A very sweet, moist loaf. A great alternative for dessert. This recipe evolved from a zucchini bread recipe. This isn’t the healthiest recipe ever, but is a little better than the run of the mill zucchini bread. This recipe qualified for Round Two of the Aetna Healthy Food Fight Cooking Contest.

      This is a very nice bread and one I will place on my "keeper" files. Very moist and hits the mark on flavor! I did though forget to add the golden raisins (which I was very upset about), but will add them the next time which will be very soon because I have an extra summer squash. Thank you MoreWithLessMom for sharing such a delicious bread. Made it for PAC 2013 Spring Safari

      This is one the best breads I have ever made. I have never had a bread turn out so moist. I have been asked for the recipe numerous times by family and friends. I have given up one of my favorite recipes and have replaced it with this one. You just can't go wrong with this wonderful recipe.
