  • PREP

    20 mins
  • COOK

    1 hr

    1 hr 30 mins


  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease 2 8x4-inch loaf pans or 2 12-cup muffin pans.
  2. Place the zucchini in a strainer and set aside to drain into a bowl or sink.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

The bread was salty and dry. I shouldnt be supprised because it didnt call for any sugar, just unsweetend applesauce.

well, this was my first time making zucchini bread and I was a little dissapointed... I thought this recipe was weird at first because it didnt call for sugar, but i fugured I would try it.. well, it turned out super flat and still raw in the middle and it cooked for over an hour... Better luck next time I guess.. :(
