Zucchini Bread IV - Review by Karen Vipperman
Well, I have to be the spoil sport, but I wonder what folks are used to with zucchini bread? For me it *should be* one of the more moist and darker in color of all the quick breads. The recipe I normally use only makes one loaf, not two. I've found without fail that recipes that make 2 loaves generally are dry and too dense for my taste and this was no exception. That said, I substituted applesauce like other did and this was just bland and dry, not at all like the moist, flavorful recipe I'm used to. I'm going right now to look for my Better Homes and Garden Cookbook where my favorite recipe is. Now THAT is a good zucchini bread and unlike this one you don't have to hide it under a sugary crust to jazz it up--it is healthy all on its lonesome. Sorry folks. I know this may not seem like a very nice review, but I guess I'm usually extra disappointed when the reviews are so inconsistent with the results. *sigh*
You'll get two loaves of classic zucchini bread, sweet and cinnamon-spicy. This is a definite crowd-pleaser.
I call this the 'recipe with legs' because every time I serve it, the recipe is requested. Even those who dislike yams and sweet potatoes love this tasty dish! This dish can be frozen, but freeze it without the pecan topping. Defrost before baking.
These are our dog's favorite treats! If your dog has a corn allergy, you can substitute additional flour or oats for the cornmeal. Bone appetit!
