This zucchini bread is moist and easy to put together! These get eaten fast so watch out! Add some mashed bananas, shredded carrots, or raisins as well. Top with a crumble or frosting!

  • Place the zucchini in a strainer and set aside to drain into a bowl or sink.

  • Sift the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Create a well in the middle of the flour mixture; combine the applesauce, vanilla, eggs, butter, walnuts, and drained zucchini in the center of the well. Mix until all ingredients are combined into a batter; pour into the loaf pans.

  • Bake the loaves in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour for loaves or 25 minutes for muffins. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

I started making the recipe and then I realized that the reviews were not good. I was already deciding on making half the recipe I followed the recipe except I halved everything with the following exceptions: I only used 1 teaspoon of cinnamon two small eggs but I did use about 2 cups of shredded zucchini and I did not drain. My zucchini seemed rather on the dry side anyway I also used 1 tablespoon of butter. I added one cup of sugar I baked it at 325 for one hour and it came out fantastic. I have made zucchini bread in the past without it being this good. I will always recommend reading the reviews before you get started.

What did I do wrong? I had to bake this bread over an hour- it is still raw in the middle- flat- and not so yummy. bummer.

To previous reviewers the 25 mins was for muffins. If you read directions again they say one hour for bread.

Poor recipe was rayed one so I had to try it out!! I don't jnow any quick bread or bread that takes "25 minutes" so I kept an eye an a toothpick on it. UPDATE:: After said an done this recipe was quite good for a low sugar low fat recipe. I couldn't bring myself to use 3 TBLS of cinnamon an vanilla or measure my zucchini per se but it wasn't as flavorful as I was hoping. Thought the texture was great really tried to drain every drop out. Also had the delight in using homemade reduced sugar applesauce. It's unfortunate that the first reviewer had to start it off with such a downcast appearance. Def deserving of more than 1 star!! thank you for sharing

I really enjoyed this recipe. Unlike many recipes with sugar in them it comes out more like a "bread" rather than "cake." It was delicious topped with just a little powdered sugar. Like other reviewers I only used 1 tablespoon of both cinnamon and vanilla.

I did not realize it did not have sugar. Applesauce is a substitute for oil not sugar. I wasted a good deal of money on product and time and it had a terrible flavor.

The recipe did not call for sugar. I would assume you add at least 2 cups. Wish I had gone ahead and added it before making the bread. Otherwise it had good texture and moistness.
