    This bread came out wonderfully moist. It's very good--I would highly recommend it. My family really took to this bread. It took my oven about 1 hr and 5 minutes to bake. I also added 1/2 c. chocolate chips to one batch. Very delicious!

    This recipe is identical to my grandmothers except for 2 minor changes: she only used 1 1/2 c. sugar and she used 1 c. of nuts. It is fabulous.

    Excellent recipe. I had already grated my zucchini, so I just mixed the wet ingredients, added the zucchini (all in my kitchenaid) the added the dry ingredients to the wet. I added choc chips and baked it in a 9x13 for about 50 minutes. Very good and moist.

    Mary - This is a winner! You should be proud! Admittedly, I added a dash of nutmeg, extra cinnamon (as always) and increased the walnuts to 1 cup. Also, almost always, I replaced half of the flour with oats, and half of the sugar with honey. As, I noticed, in another recipe, I added 1 cup of grated carrots to increase the fiber.

    This recipe is a snap to make and so delicious! What a nice change from the usual banana bread. I'm on my way to make it again and, this time, will put in chocolate chips instead of nuts (to please my kids). Thanks for this recipe!
