Zucchini Bread

What to do with all that zucchini that is growing in your garden?? This bread is delicious! I found the recipe on the web, but tweaked it quite a bit according to other people that have tried it. It turned out fabulous. My favorite zucchini bread recipe ever (and I've made several recipes). It is moist, but not mushy. Enjoy!

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour (or you CAN use all white)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
2 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. ground nutmeg
3 eggs
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix together well.

2. In a mixer, mix together eggs, sugars, apple sauce, vegetable oil, and vanilla.

3. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet. Mix well. Stir in the zucchini and walnuts (if using) until just combined.

4. Pour batter into 2 well greased loaf pans. Bake at 325 for apx. 50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool!

*Great with cream cheese spread on it!
*Throw in some chocolate chips for a more dessert-type bread.
