"I love zucchini bread and jalapenos and with the bounty of both coming out of my garden I figured I'd mix the two together. The jalapenos add just the right amount of heat. You can add walnuts and/or raisins, if desired."
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans.
Whisk flour, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and powdered jalapeno pepper together in a bowl. Add vegetable oil, applesauce, and eggs to flour mixture; beat until until batter is smooth. Fold zucchini and fresh jalapenos into batter. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean, about 1 hour. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
You can make these into muffins instead of loaves, if desired. Grease 24 muffin cups or line with paper liners. Pour batter into prepared cups and bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) until set, about 20 minutes.
