Besides for the fact I had the ingredients for this I was looking to use anyway, I just had to try this recipe given that only three people had reviewed it with very mixed reviews, averaging this out to a fairly low rating. I had to find out for myself! I agree with The Messy Cook wholeheartedly - this is a very nice bread with great raspberry/lemon flavor and the reviewer for whom this bread didn't rise probably didn't use self rising flour - or maybe it was OLD self rising flour. I left out the nutmeg and nuts and added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla for heightened flavor. I couldn't have been more pleased. It's moist, pretty with its flecks of zucchini and dots of raspberry, and the amount of cinnamon is just right. With zucchini so in season now, I hope others will give this recipe a try. It certainly is worth more than the 3-star rating it has right now. Great recipe reedfamilyof5!

The flavor of raspberry,zucchini,and cinnamon with the nuts is very nice. The bread may be better if 1 tsp.baking powder and/or soda and a bit of salt were added. Too soggy and dense.

i don't know what the other review was talking about. I love zesting things, so I was all for the lemon zest. And I was surprised by the raspberries and they complimented the bread well. And I think the other reviewer must have used regular flour instead of the self rising flour (which has baking powder and salt in it!). Do try :)

This is a lovely bread. If you don't have self rising flour, you can add 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of salt with all-purpose flour. The flavors blend beautifully.

I made this bread last summer as my DIL had lots of zucchini in her garden. It was such a big hit with my son, DIL & kids. I was hoping to find the recipe again since I didn't save it. There are blackberries in the freezer, so will try them instead of the raspberries.

My fiance said this was the best bread I have made. Instead of shredding the zucchini I finely chopped it and the grated lemon peel is a must for the flavor!

I can't believe that my friend and I are the only ones to have this problem: when made as written it is not a bread batter but just crumbly crumbs. I checked my Lemon Zucchini bread recipe (from this site) and it was very similar except it had twice the oil. So we doubled it here to get the right consistency. Otherwise yummy.
