I have tried MANY recipes for zucchini bread in an attempt to use up the dozens of zucchini my Grandad supplies me with in the Summer. This is my Mom's recipe and I have never found its equal! Even my kids love it! It's moist, flavorful and freezes well. I also love that this recipe makes two loaves -- one to eat and one to freeze or give away! It's the best!
