Apple Zucchini Loaf Recipe

I save time, use less oil and have moister results when I add jars of baby food fruit to my quick breads. This recipe is a big help if company is coming and you want to make bread for dinner or to have with coffee. —JoAnn Lee of Accord, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 jar (4-1/2 ounces) diced apple baby food
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup finely shredded zucchini
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Dash ground cinnamon


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Drain apples, reserving juice. In another bowl, whisk the egg, oil and reserved juice. Stir into dry ingredients just until blended. Fold in zucchini and apples until moistened.
  • 2. Pour into an 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over top. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf (12 slices).

"Easy to make and delicious. Followed reviewer?s suggestion, I used ½ cup apple sauce and less sugar. Friends and family loved it and asked for more. It?s a keeper."

"Love the topping! Used coconut butter for top instead of butter and flax meal to replace the egg. Applesauce really makes it moist. My husband ate 3/4 of it throughout the morning! I used 1 1/2 cup oat flour, 1/2 cup pastry flour, and 1 cup brown rice flour. I doubled the recipe but still only added the 1 cup sugar. It didn't need any more than that. :)"

" comment should have said 4 1/2 ounces of finely chopped apples not 450."

"This recipe is outstanding. I'm going to experiment with it to reduce/replace the unhealthy white stuff (sugar/flour) but it's not going to be easy as this has become a family favorite and is high demand. Unless you are eating it yourself, double the recipe because it doesn't last long and you'll be grating the zucchini once more. I couldn't find the babyfood diced apples so I chop 450 oz. of apples and add 1/3 cup juice, applesauce, or cider per loaf."
