I made this recipe exactly and it came out so yummy that I will make this part of my regular go-to recipes. Note: 1 only used 1 cup of sugar. Excellent!

I got this recipe from a co-worker in 1966 but nine called for 2 teaspoons cinnamon and to add the pineapple with juice. there was no nutmeg in my recipe. I alway's added golden raisins.

This bread turned out very good! I cut the sugar to 1 cup (we do not like it so sweet). I also used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 2 cups of unbleached all-purpose flour to make it healthier. I used 1 cup of chopped walnuts and 1 cup of golden raisins. I used grated zuchinni from the freezer. Next time I make it I will use some of the pineapple juice instead of the liquid from the frozen zuchinni that came from it after I thawed it. I also used a 1/2 cup of applesauce and 1/2 cup of oil. I will definitely be making this recipe again!

This is a very good recipe, made just as it is. To jamisnck I would say check the expiration date of your flour, or your baking powder. If they are expired, your baked goods will not bake right. There's nothing wrong with this recipe.

Hello! I am a CIA Chef - Culinary Institute of America - Not Central Intelligence Agency :) and was asked by a friend to look at this recipe as she had problems similar to what "jamisnck" had. I immediately noticed several systemic problems in this recipe. The first is you need to whip/beat the crap out of until light & fluffy the eggs, oil (whatever you choose including apple sauce for half of oil) & the vanilla & MOST important the sugar!! Next, the sugar is way high! I would recommend 1 Cup white & 1/2 Brown; after you whip the crap out of the eggs, sugar, oil & vanilla stir in the shredded zucchini & pineapple. Don't let sit long as the Zucchini will sweat out. Flour, baking soda, baking powder & spices are on point, except I knocked the salt back to 1/2 teaspoon. Whisk well in separate bowl then add the nuts & raisins if you want & mix well to coat. Then add the dry to to the wet and mix ONLY lightly by hand/spoon until combined! It is very important for quick breads & muffins not to be over mixed! Bake as directed, for loaves but check after 40 minutes add additional time in 5 minute increments. For Muffins, bake 20-25 Minutes. Cool Loaves 15 minutes in pan, Muffins 10, then turn out to cooling rack & cool completely. Hope this helps, I know it did my friend & I spent some time on!! Enjoy :) Last - Want to make it healthier? Use 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour & 1 1/2 White Flour; 1/2 cup Natural Apple Sauce & 1/2 cup Coconut oil.
