  1. Made this tonight and it was great! Used the oil/applesauce instead of butter since I think it makes a moister bread. Actually used more applesauce than oil. I increased it by 50% since I had extra zucchini and made 4 loaves and baked them for about 54 mins. Thanks for the recipe! I'm sure my friends and son's teacher will thank you also!
  2. Hello I gave your recipe a try today and I don't know what I did wrong when I finish mixing everything the mixture was so hard to put it on the loaf pans I still did it they came out good but kind of crunchy in the top I followed your directions like u said and it didn't come out looking nothing like the picture I used 1/2 apple sauce 1/2 cup oil?
  3. Made this recipe yesterday, used the 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup home made apple sauce and the 2 cups of zucchini versus the 1, which I noticed was a choice, it was super moist and delicious, gave one away as a gift and got great reviews on the gift one plus my family loved it....

    I made this recipe and it turned out fantastic. The only changes I made was I cut the sugar amount by half and I use all applesauce instead of using any oil or butter. I also substituted wheat flour and it still turned out fantasticly. I do think even though I halved the sugar amount I will even use less next time it was still a little too sweet still.
