Bikini Zucchini Bread

Yes, I still have the giant zucchini from Illinois in my refrigerator. Yes, I have every intention of creating many a delicious concoction until the monster veg has been defeated and devoured. I found the holy grail of zucchini bread recipes on and slimmed it down a bit because lawd knows, I will want to eat this entire loaf. You can find the original recipe here. I halved the recipe, because, again, I would hide in the pantry eating a whole loaf myself, knowing I had to share the second one.

My biggest suggestion is to sub out all the artery clogging oil in favor of applesauce. You use the exact same amount of applesauce as you would oil, so it saves the math headache for another baking day. I also use Pam for Baking instead of grease and flour. Saves the calories and the time. I mean, who wants to wait when you have a cinnamonlicious bread rising in the oven?

I may make this again this week to spread the love to Hardworking Hubby's coworkers, and to my little Museum staff, too.
