I have to admit, I love Paula but don't cook a lot of her recipes, but am so glad I tried this one! The very best zucchini bread recipe I've ever had. I did modify slightly, with using half whole wheat flour and a bit less sugar. Also whipped up a combo of Mascapone cheese with some Greek vanilla yogurt to dollop on a slice. Yum"
