zucchini bread!

hi allll! my favorite friend Connie (our night security guard at work) had a birthday and i made him his favorite zucchini bread! Connie is the coolest, sweetest 72 year old man i know. i'm all about big, fun, crazy cakes for birthdays but the man requests this bread every year and how could i disappoint the one guy who calls me a "cool dude" and actually means it!?

zucchini bread
3 eggs
2 medium zucchini - grated
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup applesauce
2 cups sugar
1 Tb. vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tb. cinnamon
1 ts. salt
1 ts. baking soda
1/2 ts. allspice
1/2 ts. ground cloves
1/2 ts. nutmeg
1/4 ts. ginger
1/4 ts. baking powder

preheat oven to 350. grease two standard loaf pans- then sugar the sides. cream eggs, oil, applesauce with electric mixer. slowly add sugar and vanilla. add dry ingredients one by one to wet mixture. stir in zucchini by hand once all other ingredients are combined. bake for approx. 30 minutes or until a toothpick runs clean. for a little extra sweetness sprinkle sugar on the top when the cake is nearly finished baking!

aaand not to brag, but this stuff is really sooo good! promise promise
