I think this looks great on Holiday tables. Change the M&M colors to suit whichever holiday has come!

The addition of zucchini puree and applesauce make this bread really moist. There's a great combination of textures and flavors in this recipe. It would be a perfect breakfast or snack to have on hand for house guests during the holidays. I loved the M&M's on top. The Test Kitchen
