Loved it. VERY MOIST, easy to make, and takes spices well. It has a hearty taste, not overly sweet but just perfect as a morning bread with tea, or afternoons with coffee or espresso. Made it as a bread, not muffins. Used 2 tsp vanilla. Left out the cherries. Added spices I like: 2 tsps cinnamon, 1/2 tsp cardamon, 1/8 tsp ginger and 1/8 tsp allspice. Gives a subtle "chai" flavor boost. Also: cooks for about 1hr 20 minutes (check at the 1 hr 15 minute mark), in a gas oven, used a glass loaf pan, greased w/crisco. This is a keeper.
Very moist and good texture. Loved the dried cherries. The only thing I would add is some cinnamon/nutmeg for a bit more flavor. I made mine in a regular loaf pan and baked about 1 hour. just the right amount of sweetness. Made for Spring 2010 PAC.
Mmm, yummy! What a moist and flavourful zucchini bread! I really liked the addition of the dried cherries. I made half the recipe using a tad more zucchini and reducing the sugar a bit. I baked it in muffin tins as I dont have a mini loaf tin and ended up with 10 muffins which took about 35 minutes to bake through. Everyone loved them!
THANK YOU for sharing this keeper with us, Ceciliasmom!
