VERY NICE bread with a mild lemon flavor. I made 1 loaf using: 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup Splenda granular, 1oz sugar-free instant lemon pudding, 1% milk, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce and all else the same. I think it adapted well, perhaps a little heartier and it doesn't taste lighter. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

Very good zucchini bread. Love all the lemon flavor in this. I added the juice of one lemon. I only used about 1/2 the poppy seeds and it was just right for our tastes. Mine baked up in 60 minutes. I froze one of the loaves for later, thanks so much for sharing this recipe Lainey its a tasty way to use up fresh garden zucchini.

Delicious! Really fresh-flavoured, with a fluffy texture. I made muffins, because they're more functional for my family (although I've made the recipe in loaf form as well). I used half all purpose flour and half whole wheat. I baked my 30 standard sized muffins for 23 minutes plus my 36 mini muffins for 14 minutes. My children love these too!
