Pineapple Zucchini Bread


The Menu:
Pineapple Zucchini Bread

The Original Recipe:
I got this recipe off of my favorite recipe board. I'm not going to post seperately the way I changed it. I am just going to add it here! It turned out GREAT! I didn't have plain applesauce so I ended up using my kids peach flavored kind, but you cannot taste that at all. Anyway, I didn't see in the recipe how much sugar to use, so I used 1 1/2 cup sugar (which I am adding into the recipe below so you can print it). I also used 2cups flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour and no nuts. We think it turned out great. I had frozen zucchini and did drain off some juice seeing there there was oil, applesauce and things in this recipe that made it very wet.
I baked it for 50 minutes and was perfectly done in the middle.
