My July cake is Zucchini loaf from Seattle - page 270
I made the full recipe
but horrors I found that I did not have APF
so I used 2 cups hi-protein flour and 1 cup wholewheat flour
and reduced the sugars to 1.5 cups light brown sugar
instead of 2 cups granulated sugars
(I think I could have reduced it to 1 cup!)
everything else I followed the recipe
except I used three pans instead of one or the suggested two
and buttered and floured the pans
the two smaller pans took 35 mins and the oval pan 45 mins to bake,
and they popped out of the pans without any problems - yeah!
This was my breakfast this morning with Turkish coffee (unsweetened)
This cake was surprisingly good and so so easy to put together
without any electrical appliances involved!

I really enjoyed the zucchini loaves too. Yours look delicious!

I'm excited to try this cake/bread. Great idea to split them up. I hate when I don't have the ingredients I need.

I agree that it does not need that much sugar. Isn't it delicous!

Cool that you baked smaller ones. Quicker to bake is a good thing! They look wonderful.
