Z IS FOR.....


 Zucchini Bread

  • 1 1/2 cups grated zucchini - lightly packed -do not drain liquid
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil -or your preferred cooking oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, add the grated zucchini, sugar, brown sugar, applesauce, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk until well combined.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Stir just until no dry flour remains, trying not to over mix.
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan. Bake for 50 to 54 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of the bread should come out with moist crumbs on it.
  • Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely before slicing.
  • Store covered in the refrigerator. *This bread is best served after it has been refrigerated for at least 12 hours.

  1. No, no, no... no zucchini for me! No summer squash of any type, thank you very much! I grow winter squash, and use it all like pumpkin. Maybe your recipe would be okay, with apple sauce and lots of spices, I won't know it's zucchini, until I see the green shreds! Thanks for the fun A to Z! You are one busy quilter!

  2. Hi Sherrie, thank you for sharing your lovely recipe for something I love. Meanwhile pretty blocks and I’m glad to read you enjoyed making a string block. They are carefree to sew and use up a lot of scraps. I really like them. Happy Stitching!

  3. I love zucchinis!! And your block too ;)
    Congratulations on completing the challenge!


Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!!
