I cut the recipe in half to make 1 loaf, and cut the sugar for one loaf to 2/3 cup and didn't peel the zuke. Very good bread. Loved the spices in this. Not bland like some I have tried. Made for Spring 2012 Pick a Chef Game.
When making this bread, I didn't peel the zucchini, since much of the nutrition is in the peel! Other than that, though, the recipe was pretty much followed, & the resulting zucchini bread was very, very delicious! Definitely something to make again & again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
