    i like zucchini bread but never made it myself. The shortening sounds a little scary. But this sound delicious.

    I was lucky enough to be in a chef's kitchen when he was making these. I was just observing, but when I left he gave me one! Delicious!

    For frying he used a mixture of canola and olive oil. the canola can take a higher heat than just olive oil.
