For a girl who hates veggies...

I could live on zucchini bread alone.



I'm pretty sure the streets of Heaven are made of this stuff.

I adore my mother-in-law's recipe, but couldn't find it yesterday so I opted for one on AllRecipes.com. (http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/moms-zucchini-bread/Detail.aspx)  I added 2 T. of wheatgerm and substituted half the oil with applesauce. It's now even healthier.

What's not to love?

Next time, though, I'll slip in some whole wheat flour. And I'd really like to work on a sugar substitute.

I can't stand Splenda, so that's out. Stevia's good, but it's not a 1:1 ratio and I don't know what'll happen with the chemistry of the bread if I don't have the same numerical amount of sugar.

Any delicious thoughts on that one?

My tummy is now very full and I still have half a slice of the Heaven Bread here in front of me, begging to be eaten. Can I resist?

Hmm...sounds good.

How about dark agave syrup? I hear that's good for baking.
