This is the best zucchini bread recipe I have tried. We all liked the honey/molasses flavour, and the lightness. I have made it with currants, dried cranberries, walnuts, and pecans - a different addition each time. I keep a jar of applesauce on hand in the cupboard, and freeze the remainder once it's opened.
I use the fine grater attachment on my food processor to get fine strands of zucchini.
This recipe reminded me of when I was dieting and was making food that had low or no fat in it. Even if it wasn't that good you ate it anyway because it was low in fat and it was sweet. The bread was heavy and rubbery looking. The taste was bland. I think if you added some salt(maybe about 1/2 tsp.) and more oil and maybe less applesauce you may have a better tasteing bread.
I made this for my office and the two loaves were gone in minutes. I used light molasses so it was not overpowering and because I did not have plain applesauce I used chunky which actually gave it a little more texture. I used the process of Dejourger (draw out water) learned in a recipe from this site for "abby's Zuc bread" that process really made this recipe light. This was delicious and a real recipe keeper.
I was excited about this recipe because I love zucchini bread and was looking for a healthier variation. I have to admit the flavor was good, even without nuts or vanilla (which I didn't have on hand). However, even after baking for over an hour, the loaves sank and I found they were still partially raw inside. Guess my toothpick wasn't long enough! There was still enough "baked" in one loaf for me to enjoy, though.
My very first attempt at Zucchini bread and it was a big hit. My family and co-workers raved about it. Several asked for the recipe. My 1 yr old grandaughter can't seem to eat enough !! Great recipe, easy, quick and delicious.
I have made this recipe many times. Our family loves it! I did add 1/2 t. of salt to the recipe for a little extra flavor.
I followed the recipe exactly, except I made muffins. They are really good!!!
