In Logan, Utah, Edie DeSpain bakes mild orange-flavored loaves that are chock-full of chocolate chips, nuts and spices. "This bread is easy to stir up, yet it tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen," she assures.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and baking powder. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, applesauce, oil, orange zest and vanilla. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the zucchini, nuts and chocolate chips. Transfer to two greased 8x4-in. loaf pans.
  2. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
