My 12 year old daughter and I LOVE this recipe!! We use it for more than just zucchini bread, too! We use it for banana nut & apple raisin. We also bake more than just bread with it! We take our large muffin tin, greased - no papers, and put in 1/4 scoop batter for yummy muffins! Banana muffins generally bake for 20 minutes at the suggested 325 degrees, but I start checking them @ 15 minutes for that golden brown top. Apple Raisin takes closer to 30 minutes as muffins because the apples are so moist (like zucchini). I bake the banana nut breads for the same time and degrees as the zucchini recipe calls for, but the apple raisin bread cooks for the full 60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean :)
We always use half the oil, as many others have suggested/done, 1 cup white sugar and only 3/4 cup brown sugar (Instead of the recipes calling for 2 cups white sugar). When we turn this into banana nut bread, we use 5 bananas and as many crushed nuts as we desire. When we make apple raisin bread I have cut up 5 large Jonathon or early golden delicious apples sliced small, plus 1 cup raisins. When/if you try the apple raisin bread, the batter seems VERY dry before you add the apples. Do not despair, adding the apples DOES make the batter more pliable ;)
This recipe is a MUST TRY!!!!! :)
