I found this recipe in a book but I didn't want the usual cinnamon spice that was in most recipes you see, so I substituted fresh lemon rind, yummy! Makes for a refreshing zucchini bread from the norm. It's great straight out of the freezer and slices very easily. My son won't touch zucchini except for this bread.

- 1 3⁄4 cups sugar
