  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.
    • Hi Stacy, I'm sure you could cook this in a bundt pan, I'm not sure if it would be too much batter for one cake. We haven't used a bundt pan before. The main thing would be getting the batter about the same depth as you would in the loaf pan. It might take one batch of experimenting. This is one of our favorite pumpkin bread recipes. Have a great day.
