Another Zucchini Bread recipe for you!
A couple of weeks ago we were going to visit my grandparents and I wanted to bring my sweet grandmother some zucchini bread. I’ve seen some great zucchini bread recipes in blog land this summer and I was inspired particularly by recipes from Stephanie’s Kitchen and Prudence Pennywise. Zucchini bread is one of those foods that you want to feel good about eating (right?) so I wanted to lighten mine up a bit…everyone was happy with how it turned out so I will be making it again soon!
FYI…my pictures show one of the loaves with chopped nuts on top, that is because I forgot to add the nuts until it was too late…I added them while they were in the oven…it turned out pretty good! : )
Aggie’s Zucchini Bread
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg (I use whole nutmeg and grind it on microplane – so good!)
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
3 cups shredded unpeeled zucchini
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 cup finely chopped pineapple (fresh or canned)
1/2 – 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Stephanie from Stephanie’s Kitchen sprinkles Cinnamon Sugar on hers…I just know my kids would love that so I am going to try that next time.
