    Used different ingredients. The instructions refer to baking soda, but it wasn't listed in the ingredients. I added 1 tsp of baking soda as that's what I use in similar recipes.  -  15 May 2010


    Very nice. This makes a lovely tea cake. Quite a strong cinnamon flavour and the zucchini makes for a nice moist texture.  -  15 May 2010


    Moist, delicious and YUMMY! I've made without altering and it is delicious but ofcourse I always take it to another level which is even YUMMIER! I used 3 cups of zucchini instead of 2, 2 cups white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar instead of all white sugar and added a sprinkle of nutmeg. I also make a crumb topping( 2/3 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and 1 stick softened butter-mix altogether with hand) and sprinkle all over the top of the loaves before baking. Now- that is one heck of a good loaf of blueberry zucchini bread! Will not leave my recipe box!  -  21 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
