I'm still looking for the perfect Zucchini Bread

Ever since I found the perfect Zucchini bread at the Watkinsville Farmers' Market last year, I have searched for that ONE perfect recipe- perfectly spiced, perfectly moist, and a rich brown color inside and out. I still haven't found it. Instead, I came across a recipe that while not dessert worthy, it makes a nice bread for a meal. Not as sweet as that perfect loaf, it has a mild flavor that will work well as a side dish. The other complaint I have with this loaf is the color. It's pale, pasty, and well, rather ugly. None the less, it makes for a decent addition to any meal.
I can't remember where I found this recipe online, so forgive me for not giving credit.
