If I had a garden, I would tell you a story about how it’s zucchini season and my garden is overflowing with zucchini and I don’t know what to do with it all. However, that’s not the case. I don’t have a garden. And there isn’t an abundance of zucchini in my home. But it IS the season and therefore its super cheap at the store. So go get some and whip up a couple of loaves of this bread.
One quick note on the oil: Yes, there is a lot of oil in this recipe. But keep in mind that this recipe makes 2 loaves. That’s 24 slices of bread. This is also a dessert. So eat in moderation! Yes, if you eat the whole loaf in one setting, like I do, then yes, you are consuming an awful lot of oil. But pace yourself and you’ll be fine.
Also, I repeat, 2 loaves! That means you are supposed to keep one for yourself and give the other one to a friend. Like me. I’ll take it off your hands.
- 3/4 Cup Applesauce
- 1 Cup Vegetable Oil

Mix together the applesauce, oil, sugar, zucchini and vanilla in a bowl.
