Wonderful! I have made this several times now and have a few loafs in the freezer. I have given 2 people the recipe already, everyone loves it! I did substitute 1/2 the oil with 1/2 applesauce and added some xtra vanilla. I peeled min on accident too, but now I do it everytime. Also the 3rd time I made this I tried it with 1/2 whole wheat flour sifted, 1/2 applesauce and with 3/4 c eggbeaters...it was still just as delicious! Thanks
The first time I made it I only had 1 cup of white sugar so I used brown sugar for the second cup. I've always done that since it turned out so well the first time! The most decent time I was feeling kinda lazy and I blended the zucchini instead of grating it. Turned out just as well as it usually does :) I use milk chocolate chips in mine, so it is quite sweet. I'm thinking of reducing the sugar the next time I make it to see how it turns out.
Yum!! I tweaked this recipe quite a bit but I have a feeling that it would have turned out wonderfully even if I hadn't. I used only 1 cup granulated sugar, substituted two individual servings of cinnamon applesauce plus 1 1/2 tbsp oil for the oil, used 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut and 1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut, and added a heaping half cup of chopped walnuts and 3/4 tsp lime juice. Also, instead of bread, I made muffins. The muffins baked in about 30 min. The batter tasted amazing, but after baking, I could tell that I needed to add something. So, I whipped up a glaze consisting of 1 cup plus 2 tbsp powdered sugar, 1 tbsp lime juice, 4 tsp lemon juice, and 1 tsp vanilla and dipped the muffins in it. Delicious!
Just made this bread with the first of my surplus zucchini for the year. The only sub I made was to use coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. It is supposed to be the new health food craze, coconut oil. I think it enhanced the taste and still had all the normal qualities that would have come from vegetable oil.
