I've been searching for the perfect quickbread recipe to keep me supplied with fresh baking throughout the week, and this is my favorite so far. The first time I made it, I halved the recipe to make one small loaf, but added one whole egg, which seemed to make it quite moist. I used melted butter in place of oil. I added some grated carrot along with the zucchini. I also used half the amount of brown sugar instead of white. I omitted the currants and nuts. Second time, I did not half the recipe, and also added some chopped sour apple in place of the currants. I tried using half a cup brown sugar and half a cup of honey. I think I'll leave out the apple next time, as it didn't add anything to the flavor. I might also use a quarter cup brown sugar and half a cup of honey, although the flavor of this batch is very sweet and rich. This batch is not as moist, although I did not find it dry, so I may add two eggs next time. At the suggestion of another review, I sprinkled oatmeal on top 15 min into baking, making it quite pretty.
