    Laudee's Note:

    I found this great Zuke Bread recipe in the Rocky Mountain News, but, it originated in The Uncommon Gourmet Cookbook by Ellen Helman. I've made it many times over the years and have always had good luck with it. I also like to make muffins out of this batter as well. Fill them about 2/3 full and bake about 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Bread or muffins freeze really well. I cut down the prep time by grating and freezing 3 cups of Zuke's in freezer bags and defrosting as I need them.

      Excellent zucchini bread, Laudee! I used the 9x4" loaf pan and it left over enough batter to make a mini loaf. I liked the addition of the pecans and the raisins. The raisins added just the right touch of sweetness. I'm wondering how this might taste omitting the raisins and adding small chopped dates. The nutmeg and clove was also a nice addition! I'm planning to gorge myself on the mini loaf now, and freezing the larger loaf for a time when we have company : ) Yummy, Laudee!!

      Laudee C, We have Zuchinni year round as my husband grows it and then he shreds it for me and measures it out and freezes it for me,so when I find a recipe I want to try I have the zuchinni on hand to do so,And may I say this Bread was Soooooo Gooood, I love zuchinni bread best of all,I like banana bread too,but zuchinni is my favorite, The only thing I did different was to use Black Walnuts instead of pecans.(My favorite),But this recipe was Wonderful. Thanks,Darlene Summers
