This is a great recipe that I got in my e-mail from my Clabbergirl newsletter for zucchini bread and some wonderful variations. I love the pineapple variation.

The dough is very dry so I added a little more zucchini. I also used 3/4 cup splenda and 1/4 cup sugar. Finally, who can wait until the next day to try it?!! Very tasty warm from the oven.
