Reviews forApple Zucchini Loaf
"Good and moist. Used mostly whole wheat flour and also cut down sugar as recommended. Will make again."
"Best bread ever instead of coconut I just add walnuts"
"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. :)"
"I used applesauce in place of the baby food and pecans in place of the coconut in the topping. Turned out very nice."
"Loved this recipie! I also added applesauce instead of baby food apples."
"Hey I was just wondering if anyone knows if this freezes well?"
"Sorry...my 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."
