Zucchini Bread Recipe

 Zucchini bread is moist in the middle, while the crust is crisp. The slight hint of cinnamon brings out the best in this yummy fall treat.
Zucchini Bread RecipeThis time of year we always have an excess of zucchini. While I like to eat it with dinner, sometimes I don't get it picked at it's prime. When I have an extra large zucchini, I always shred it up and make either zucchini bread or zucchini cake. Or sometimes I just shred it up and freeze it, so I can make it later down the road. Today, I'll share with you my zucchini bread recipe.

I made this a lighter version by replacing half of the oil with applesauce. I can't taste the difference, and I don't feel guilty in indulging in a few slices. I generally don't add nuts or raisins because then my kids won't eat it.
