Zucchini Bread

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! A couple of people asked for the zucchini bread recipe that I use; it is SO Good!

This is from: "Special Diet Solutions" by Carol Fenster, Ph.D.; 2003; pg. 57

Zucchini Bread

1/4 C veg. oil

2/3 C brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 C drained applesauce

1 C garb/fava bean flour or brown rice flour

1/2 C potato starch

1/4 C tapioca flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp xan. gum

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp ground cinnnamon

1 1/2 C finely grated Zucchini

1/2 C chopped pecans (optional)

1/4 C raisins (optional)


Preheat oven to 350

Grease 9x5 pan or 3 (5x3) pans

In large bowl cream oil and sugar w/mixer

Add eggs, vanilla, and applesauce

Beat til smooth

Add flours through cinnamon

Mix on medium until thoroughly combined

Quickly (but gently ) add zucchini (pecans, and raisins too if using)

Batter will be thick

Turn into pan(s) and bake for 1 hour for 9x5 pan or 45 min. for 5x3 pans. (if you omit raisins and nuts only use 2 5x3 pans)

Yummy! Hope you enjoy :)

When I made these, I made them as muffins and baked the muffins for approx. 30 minutes

I also added shredded carrots one time...mmmm! B) If you spread the top of these with cream cheese, it's like having carrot cake! (and I've never been one to turn down carrot cake for breakfast...or any other time for that matter) :P

I would like to try this recipe. What does drained applesauce mean?


Glad you enjoyed them Amanda! B) I'm so happy to see that someone made them!

Sharon, I assumed it meant to drain the excess juice off the applesauce...otherwise, the bread or muffins may be soggy due to the extra moisture. To keep the "thicker" part of the applesauce, I simply poured it into a seive/colander and let the juice drip out. If you have a colander with bigger holes (and you are afraid all of the applesauce may slide through the holes), I've found laying one or two paper towels in the bottom helps only the excess juice drip through (this is a good tip for anything small/mushy you are trying to drain). ;) If you do line the colander with papertowels, take your big spoon and "mush" on the applesauce until no more juice drips out the bottom.

Hope this helps! :)
