DREAMIN' ZUCCHINI

I'm still dreamin' zucchini.
I have to say, of the various zucchini breads I've baked over the years,
this recipe is number 1!


Caribbean Zucchini Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 ripe bananas, mashed
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup shredded coconut
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 9x5-inch loaf pans.
Whisk the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a bowl. Beat the bananas, eggs, vegetable oil, applesauce, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla together in a separate large bowl. Stir the flour mixture into the wet mixture. Fold the zucchini, walnuts, and coconut into the batter until evenly combined. Pour into the prepared pans.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Cool in the pans for 25 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack

  3. You know, I tried a recipe recently and I wanted to use the whole wheat flower because it's better for my diet...but I didn't care for the taste of the bread when it was finished. It had, umm, I can't really describe it...but the zuc bread was nowhere near as moist and as wonderful as I had hoped. This recipe may help me out.
