What You’ll Need

1 ½ Cups all purpose  flour ( sifted)

2 tsp Ground cinnamon

½ tsp Baking soda

½ tsp Baking powder

½ tsp Salt

½ tsp Nutmeg

1/4 Cup sugar

3/4 Cup Splenda

1/4 Cup applesauce ( low sugar)

½ Cup cooking oil

1 Egg

1 Cup  zucchini, skin and seed removed (very finely shredded, it should look like applesauce)

1/4 Cup raisins

¼ Cup walnuts (chopped) (optional)

Cooking spray

Whipped topping (or freshly whipped cream) optional

Large mixing bowl

Medium mixing bowl

8 x 4 x 2 loaf pan



Wire cooling rack

Before You Start  Preheat oven to 350˚ and generously spray loaf pan (bottom and sides) with cooking spray.

Let’s Make It! Put all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and combined using a fork .  In a medium bowl combine shredded zucchini, applesauce,sugar, splenda, cooking oil, egg, raisins and walnuts and mix well using a fork or whisk. Slowly pour into dry ingredients mixing a little at a time until moist. (It will look a lumpy, but shouldn’t look dry, if dry dd a dribble of oil). Spoon into prepared loaf pan. Cook for approximately 50 -70 minutes. It’ll get a nice light brown color. Test for doneness with a toothpick or wooden chopstick. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Gently remove loaf from pan and let cool on wire rack. Cool completely.

Serving Suggestions  Slice in ½ inch pieces and top with whipped topping. Butter, or my favorite, margarine.

**Katie’s Tid Bits**  if you prefer it sweeter. Skip the applesauce and the Splenda and use 1 1/4 cups of sugar instead.

 Sending prayers for all of those affected  by Irene’s storm and flooding.
