Outstanding recipe--moist, flavorful, and amazingly without any oil or butter! Admittedly I did change a few things and I usually don't review recipes that I've tweaked (because you're no longer reviewing the posted recipe!), but I did want to share the changes I made since they worked so well. First, I had no pumpkin so I used 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce instead. Two whole eggs instead of the one whole and 2 whites (laziness on my part), and instead of the maple syrup and sugar I just used 3/4 cup brown sugar, which was plenty sweet for my taste. I also threw in a ripe pear that I had to use up, and that probably helped the moistness too. I could easily see adding apples, carrots, whatever to this. I didn't have cloves or allspice so I left those out and it had plenty of flavor. Lastly, I added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts. Ok so maybe my version isn't at all like the posted recipe but it sure was good! I chopped the zucchini in the food processor, then took it out and mixed the rest of the wet ingredients in there (including the pear), and then poured the wet into the bowl of dry ingredients, then stirred in the zucchini and walnuts by hand. That was an easy way to do it. A few other thoughts: I could easily see doubling the amount of zucchini as it seemed a little light on that but if you are trying to sneak it in for your kids or hubby then leave it at 2 cups. And I think I will try this as a muffins because the edges were definitely the best part!
