Makeover Zucchini Bread

RC :)


Lightened my usual recipe by using less oil, sugar and eggs. Using some whole wheat flour does make the loaves a little more dense.

How to Make Makeover Zucchini Bread


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients.
  2. In another large bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Add the oil, applesauce, sugar and vanilla. Beat until blended.
  3. Stir into the dry ingredients until just moistened. (Will seem dry) Fold in the zucchini, raisins and nuts. (I used golden raisins for the color.)
  4. Divide among three 8 x 4 loaf pans that have been sprayed with regular or baking PAM.
  5. Bake at 350° for 40 - 50 minutes or until loaves test done. Cool for 10 minutes, remove from pans and cool completely on wire racks.
