Zucchini bread with a twist...

The other day I made my regular recipe for Zucchini bread. I ended up only having half the zucchini that I needed... so I replaced the rest of the zucchini with grated apples.

WONDERFUL! It really added a nice sweetness to the loaf.

That's pretty clever actually! Would you make it on purpose like that again?

Hmm..might have to try this. I love zuchinni bread! Do you have a recipe for a nice, moist zuchinni bread? The last recipe I used for it turned out somewhat dry and disappointing..

I would make it that way again! The apples add moistness to the loaf.

I'll post the recipe for you tomorrow. : )

Yummy copying and pasting! Thank you for sharing :)

Do you ever have problems with quick breads like this tho.. that the outside turns to dark.. before the inside gets done?

I used too.. but I started using a glass loaf pan instead of a metal one and it seems better.

I knew that would happen... Seattle was getting to big.. so they moving in on your town. It used to be so cute... and at the Candy store they used to have Big St. Bernard doggies there... they stopped doing that years ago, I think..
They have a Boems in Yakima now... but its just not the same... except, of course the prices... WAY to expensive!

ooops I think we ruined the zuchinni thread oooopsie

Yummy!

mmmmm sounds absolutely delicous, I am going to have to make it. After the loaf I made yesterday is gone, which won't take long. My family and I love Zucchini Bread, it is our favorite bread, and I am always open to new way of fixing it. I will have to use this recipe for my next loaf.Thank you for the recipe.
