    The bread has excellent flavor! My husband loved it! The only issue I had with it was that it was very, very moist. More like a brownie then a cake. I think I probably did not get all the water out of the zucchini. I will definitely try again for the “bread” texture.

      Hi Linda,
      We are so glad you enjoyed the recipe. We have adjusted the amount of zucchini. Hopefully that helps with the bread like texture!
