This is a fantastic basic recipe. I've added orange zest and chocolate chips, but nuts or carrots would work well, too. Beating the sugar and eggs until frothy ensures a light, almost cake-like consistency. To lighten the recipe, I cut the sugar down to 1 cup and use 1/4 cup of oil and 1/4 cup of fat free ricotta cheese. Turns out great every time!

Very good , don't forget to squeeze de shredded zucchini a little to get some of the Water out. Changed out 1/4 cup of oil for 1/4 cup of low fat sour Cream.

Great, I doubled the recipe which can be risky in baking. They turned out fantastic. I did shred the zucchini too fine because it was a little watery but the loafs still turned out great.
