2 cups coarsely shredded zucchini
3 cups all-purpose flour ( I used 1 1/2 cups white flour and 1 1/2 cups wheat)
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup applesauce
2 eggs (original recipe called for 1/2 cup egg substitute)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Vegetable cooking spray
Place zucchini on several layers of paper towels, and cover with additional paper towel. Let stand 5 minutes, pressing down occasionally. Set aside.
Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (flour through baking powder) in a large bowl, and stir well; make a well in center of mixture. Combine zucchini, applesauce, egg substitute, oil, and vanilla; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. (Or Madoline's lazy way: combine wet ingredients then add dry ingredients without mixing before.)
Divide batter evenly between 2 loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pans.
