Makeover Zucchini Apple Bread Recipe

Publisher Photo
Flavored with cinnamon and nutmeg, Makeover Zucchini Apple Bread delivers plenty of down-home goodness. The recipe yields three nut-filled loaves, but contains nearly 60% less fat than the recipe Kathy followed. Best of all, the sugar was decreased by 28%.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 7, 2013

"Best bread ever. It is very noisy and not too sweet. This is a keeper."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 12, 2013

"jcackler, did you use the correct size pan? Maybe that's why yours turned out a little flat."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 12, 2012

"My bread turned out really tasty. I like it's nice, light taste and like having a zucchini bread recipe that doesn't have chocolate in it. I agree with the other review in that it didn't rise a whole lot, but my loaves were still more bread like than bar like, so it wasn't a big deal. Will be making again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 20, 2010

"Mine came out very flat -- so I ended up cutting and serving them as bars instead of bread. Still filling and tasty though."
