Zucchini Berry Bread

I found this recipe for zucchini bread on Food by Carrie, and modified it to fit what I wanted to make.  Carrie’s site is great, with lots of information on the ingredients, why she uses them, and what’s healthy about them.  Here’s my variation:

Zucchini Berry Bread

Mix the following ingredients in a large bowl and set aside:

  • 2 1/2 cups shredded, unpeeled zucchini
  • 1/2 cup local honey
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs

In another bowl, combine the following:

  • 1 1/2 cups white flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Combine wet and dry ingredients.  Gently stir in:

  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/3 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 F for 1 hour or more until a toothpick comes out clean.  The honey makes the bread brown a lot, so if it gets too dark for your taste, cover it with foil.
