I followed the comments and used 2 cups zucchini, 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce, and 2 tsp of cinnamon. I baked 24 mini muffins with chocolate chips for 15 min and two smaller loaf pans with walnuts for 37 min.

Excellent! I exchanged half cup unsweetened applesauce for half the butter. Otherwise followed the recipe.

With all the butter how can it not be 5 stars? I made the recipe with brown sugar rather than white (only because I was out) and cinnamon only for the spices. My husband loved how strong the vanilla flavor was, the bread was a prefect, it only lasted 2 days in our house!

I have learned to drain and squeeze dry the zucchini for these type of recipes. This bread was wonderful and not so heavy and dense as most zucchini bread recipes after I squeezed it dry. Very, very tasty. I don't like cloves though so I halved the amount.

Wonderful recipe! I followed it as written (minus the nuts) the first time with great results. Even my picky child ate it up - he didn't even realize I was sneaking vegetables into him. The next time I made it with applesauce replacing some of the butter and sugar substitute replacing some of the sugar , and it was just as delicious. The texture was a little bit different (not quite as crumb-y) with the substitutes, which was fine with us. I wouldn't sub ALL of the fat and sugar, though because I think the results would lack the great taste/texture combo of the original recipe.
