I used 1 cup unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil to lighten it up a bit. I used golden raisins this time along with sliced almonds & kind of crumbled them up in the batter. I also added fresh lime & orange zest along with some fresh juice from the lime & orange (up to the individual as to how much). I baked mine off in a 9x13 pan.
I also topped it this time with a cream cheese icing (just cream cheese, butter, & powdered sugar. I used 4 ounces cream cheese, 2 ounces butter, & 2-1/2 cups powdered sugar (this amount worked perfectly as I doubled the recipe & made 2 9x13 pans). I also put some fresh lime zest along with fresh orange & lime juices in it.
This made a scrumptious bread that can be eaten any time. My family & friends can't stop raving about it.

I tried three zucchini bread recipes this week. They were all very good, but this one was the best, hands down. AMAZINGLY moist, flavorful, light, and tasty. I used unsalted butter instead of oil. I used four tsp. of cinnamon instead of two. My family and friends tested all three breads and all asked for this one again. I left out the raisins and nuts this time, but I'm sure it will be great with both. I'm going to make more now.

Absolutely delicious! I cut the fat by using a half cup of oil and a half cup of applesauce. I substituted dried cherries for the raisins, and used pineapple tidbits rather than crushed pineapple (it really gives a nice bite of pineapple that way). This was such a hit at my husband's office that they are now periodically sending zucchini home with him so I'll make more bread!
