“A friend gave me this recipe over 10 years and it's still a favorite. The original recipe calls for 2-3 cups of zucchini and 2-3 tsp of vanilla. I like both ingredients so I use 3 of each. I usually only add chopped walnuts or sprinkle raw sunflower seeds on the top of the bread, haven't tried the coconut, dates or raisins. It will be interesting to hear what combination you use. I also add 1/4 cup of honey (heat if solid). I sometimes use mini loaf pans (4 loaves/pan). I bake the mini loaves at 355 degrees for 43 minutes. Enjoy!”
