coarsely shredded zucchini
1 3/4 cups
I was so happy with this recipe. I tried it with 2 eggs instead of egg substitute and 1 cup of whole wheat flour, 1 1/2 cup of white flour, and 1/2 cup of soy flour, instead of 3 cups of white flour, for added protein and fiber.
I would suggest only 1 cup of sugar and more zucchini. This is an adequate recipe but not enough flavor for me. Maybe if I added some walnuts. More spice might help, too.
Well, its funny with this one. I made this bread when I had a baby sized zucchini on my hands (and still had half leftover after the recipe!) and wasn't sure it had turned out as moist as I had hoped on the first night as I tried it still-hot from the pan. Ironically by the next day it was fabulous. It didn't have that stretchy texture that sometimes comes with applesauce-substituting recipes. And so here I am, 3 days later and still absolutely loving this still moist bread. I did change a couple of things. I added a small handful of chopped walnuts and a couple handfuls of raisins. I also ended up using two egg whites instead of the substitute. Oh, and I actually did about half whole wheat and half white flour. Overall, the recipe was excellent and none the worse for my "creative" cooking :-) A keeper for sure!!!
AWESOME! THIS IS JUST AS MOIST AS NON-LIGHT BREADS I HAVE MADE AND JUST AS TASTY. I USED 2 EGGS INSTEAD OF THE SUB. AND ADDED 1 TSP. EACH OF CLOVES AND GINGER! BEST RECIPE FROM THE SITE BY FAR!!!!
When looking for a recipe I found this one with less sugar. This is much better for a dibetic. All enjoyed this recipe.
Using applesauce as a fat substitute sometimes makes my bread products rubbery, but not with this recipe. The bread was delightfully moist, dense and flavorful. I even used half white, unbleached flour and half whole wheat pastry flour. I also added a 1/4 TSP ground nutmeg and 1/4 TSP ground ginger along with the 1 TSP cinnamon and left out the vanilla extract all together. This recipe yielded 5 baby loaves, baked at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes only. The bread was even tastier and spicier the next day. I never need to bake a full-fat version again. :):)
This is a great recipe. I actually made mini-muffins using this recipe. I used 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 cup of wheat flour and 1 cup of oatmeal in place of the flour. I used applesauce in place of the oil and only used 3/4 cup sugar. I also did not have enough zucchini so I shredded some carrots. It turned out great. Because, I used no oil in the recipe, I did lightly spray the muffin cup liners with a little oil.
Really tasty. I didn't use egg substitute I used two eggs, so not as lowfat as originally listed but much healthier than some of the other recipes. Thought it was a little sweet and would use less sugar. The extra loaf freezes well.
