  • Spray a 9" round baking tin with nonstick spray and preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Stir together both types of flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a large bowl.
  • Make a well in the center of this mixture.
  • In another bowl, beat egg whites until foamy (not too much- just foamy, NOT to make a meringue).
  • To the egg whites, add applesauce, buttermilk, and vanilla and stir using a wooden spoon.
  • Stir in the zucchini until well combined.
  • Pour this wet mixture into the"well" you made in the flour mixture and stir just until ingredients are all moistened and gently combined- press out any large lumps with your spoon, but don't overmix.
  • Gently fold in the nuts, if using,- don't overmix or you will have tough bread.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and bake for about 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick tests clean.
  • Cool bread in pan for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
