2 Cups white whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 Cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 Cup sugar (the original recipe calls for 2/3 cup but I found 1/3 cup to be plenty sweet)
1/2 Cup buttermilk
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 Cup zucchini, grated
Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan; set aside.
In a large bowl, blend flour, salt, and baking powder; set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat 2 eggs then add applesauce and sugar and blend well.
Then add the buttermilk, lemon juice, and lemon zest and blend everything well. Fold in zucchini and stir until evenly distributed in mixture.
Add this mixture to the dry ingredients in the large bowl and blend everything together, but don’t over mix.
Pour batter into prepared 9×5 loaf pan and bake in preheated oven for 35-45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool in pan 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack and cool completely.
Makes 1 loaf.
