When I first began baking I brought samples of my early efforts to my office at McGill University where I worked as an administrative assistant. Can you imagine me in a real office in a real job ? At that time, zucchini bread was considered novel so when I brought this gorgeous, moist, lovely loaf in, no one would touch it! Finally, the guy in the office that ate everything gave it a try. As he dove in for his third slice, the rest of the office caught on; The cake became an urban office legent. People say zucchini quick bread was invented to get rid of excess zucchini. I think it is the other way around. This great loaf is packed with flavor and also makes very fine zucchini muffins. You can switch cranberries or dried cherries for the raisins and/or frost it with a carrot cake cream cheese frosting if you like but it's super by the hunky slice.
