I recreated this recipe from my original Orange Zucchini Bread that is in my cookbook for a diabetic friend. The results were amazing. This is just regular splenda. IT IS NOT MADE FROM SPLENDA BLEND FOR BAKING. ALTHOUGH I AM SURE YOU COULD USED THE ONE THAT IS MADE FROM BAKING. By using REGULAR SPLENDA I had to add the addition of NON FAT DRY MILK, AND BAKING SODA, to get the same volumn that you would get if you were using sugar. It is a great recipe, and it is one of my favorite splenda recipes to go to.

In a separate large bowl beat eggs until thick and lemon colored. Gradually beat in splenda and powdered milk until well blended.

It is very good, you can substitute canned pumpkin also, if you don't have zucchini. The mini loaves that you see were for an order.

I'd much rather have the zucchini, lemon or banana than the pumpkin (just my taste).

So would I, but I do love pumpkin nut Bread, but not plain pumpkin pie. My husband does not like Pumpkin pie the plain one either. How ever he does like my Pumpkin Pie with a twist. It is made with Cream Cheese, and taste like cheesecake somewhat. He really loves that one. I haven't posted the recipe yet, but I will soon.
