“This is very different from the usual zucchini loaves. First of all, it bakes into a round loaf and contains wheat. This is one of my favorites. One of my former neighbors used to bake a lot of items with wheat flour, and this is one of her own creations that she shared with me. Thanks Carol! Prep time allows for shredding the zucchini (I use my food processor).”
1 round loaf

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a 9" round baking tin with nonstick spray and preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Stir together both types of flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a large bowl.
  3. Make a well in the center of this mixture.
  4. In another bowl, beat egg whites until foamy (not too much- just foamy, NOT to make a meringue).
  5. To the egg whites, add applesauce, buttermilk, and vanilla and stir using a wooden spoon.
  6. Stir in the zucchini until well combined.
  7. Pour this wet mixture into the"well" you made in the flour mixture and stir just until ingredients are all moistened and gently combined- press out any large lumps with your spoon, but don't overmix.
  8. Gently fold in the nuts, if using,- don't overmix or you will have tough bread.
  9. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for about 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick tests clean.
  10. Cool bread in pan for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
