I scaled this to 2/3 (didn't have enough apple), and made it in a 9x13 like enestvmel did. It was FANTASTIC! Husband and I couldn't get enough and the 3 year old loved it. We snacked on it all day and it was addictive it was so good. We're going to try adding raisins next time, too.

This makes a large amount, so I put about 2/3 of the batter in a 9x13 (a little less than half a cake pans worth) and the rest in a bread pan. The cake came out beautiful golden brown after about 30-35 minutes. I used my small toaster oven for the bread and it took 50 minutes. We love a good snack cake at our house (without frosting) and this recipe seemed like the perfect candidate. It came out perfectly sweet and didn't even need any frosting. I did use half white and half regular wheat flour. I used a cup of homemade tart applesauce and a half cup of canola oil. I didn't have any nutmeg so I used allspice instead. I also didn't have any pecans. This was the best dessert recipe I've found in a while! Thanks Marie!!!

I changed the recipe a little. I scaled it down to 2/3 of the original quantities. I probably used 1 1/2 to 2 times the indicated amounts of zucchini and apples, reduced the sugar by about half and used all whole wheat pastry flour. I also used about half the recommended oil and added some buttermilk. 2/3 of the recipe was the perfect amount to put in a tube pan and bake for just about an hour. I topped it with a homemade caramel glaze (thus adding back the reduced sugar back in!). Very very good!
