I've made a very similar recipe using apples and canadian whiskey, but lost the basic recipe. I think this one would do nicely. I'll substitute the apples for the zucchini and soak them in crown royal maple... Should work pretty well! May omit the lemon juice, though...

A great recipe and my husband loved it also. We had a slice as soon as it came out of the oven with butter on it. I am always glad when my zucchini comes out of the garden so I can put some in the freezer to make zucchini bread through the winter also.

Fantastic. You can taste the lemon which makes it really special I added extra cinnamon and nutmeg to taste. Even my grandchildren loved it. They also helped prep the batter because it it's a long process. Be sure to use your food processor for the zucchini and squeeze out all the extra water.

This was probably the worst recipe I have tried. Although the lemon was an added ingredient, it did nothing for the flavor. There wasn't a cal for vanilla and there should have been. The bread was dry and the amount of soda should have been ut down because it tasted salty, and b the way I didn't add the salt it called for.
just me,
