Zucchini-Walnut Loaf

Lisa Asuncion Feliciano of Manila, Philippines, shared this recipe in our Kitchen to Kitchen department. She recommends making extra loaves when zucchini is abundant because they freeze well.

Serves 16

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 75 min.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 large egg whites, at room temperature (see Tip)
  • 1 cup sugar, or 1/2 cup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract, (optional)
  • 1 cup grated zucchini, lightly packed (about 8 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoon chopped walnuts

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 2 mini 6-by-3-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.

Step 2

Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl.

Step 3

Whisk egg whites, sugar (or Splenda), applesauce, oil and lemon extract (if using) in a medium bowl. Stir in zucchini.

Step 4

Make a well in the dry ingredients; slowly, mix in the zucchini mixture with a rubber spatula. Fold in walnuts. Do not overmix. Transfer the batter to the prepared pans.

Step 5

Bake the loaves until a toothpick comes out almost clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for about 5 minutes, then turn out onto the rack to cool completely.
