Very Moist Zucchini Bread

My favorite veggie bread use to be pumpkin bread until I found this zucchini bread recipe last year. It really just blows every other sweet bread recipe out of the water. The moistness is mouth pleasing, the sweetness is just right and the density is perfect.

I like the sweetness of this bread though you could lessen the amount of sugar if you want, but don't skimp out on the crumb topping as it really completes this bread. This recipe makes two loaves, we usually eat one right away and freeze the second for a later time (though it doesn't last very long cuz we love it too much!) I made only a couple of small changes to the original recipe found here at
