Author Notes

This is a classy and fragrant zucchini bread. I always loved lemon and coriander together so I adapted an old zucchini bread recipe to include these and added the pecans. Using some white whole wheat flour adds extra fiber and body to this moist and somewhat delicate tea bread. —janet voris
