This zucchini bread is moist and easy to put together! These get eaten fast so watch out! Add some mashed bananas, shredded carrots, or raisins as well. Top with a crumble or frosting!
Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease 2 8x4-inch loaf pans or 2 12-cup muffin pans.
Place the zucchini in a strainer and set aside to drain into a bowl or sink.
Sift the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Create a well in the middle of the flour mixture; combine the applesauce, vanilla, eggs, butter, walnuts, and drained zucchini in the center of the well. Mix until all ingredients are combined into a batter; pour into the loaf pans.
Bake the loaves in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour for loaves or 25 minutes for muffins. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

The quality of the flour can make a real difference to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which not always getting bigger as well as white bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can start it night before , then finish it off the next day.
