I need to know if anyone here has a good zuccini bread recipe. The one I used to use was perfect. It needs to be one with no nuts as I am allergic. The recipe I used to have came from one of those old books you used to put together with one of those recipes of the month thing that were so popular in the 70's. It, of course, doesn't have to be that one, but the one I want used cooking oil in it instead of butter or margerine and it had no nuts. Other than that and plenty of spices, (which I can improvise), that is what I need.

Also, I had a good recipe for carrot cake that was a one bowl recipe with lots of pinapple in it. I don't need the icing as I have the cream cheese icing recipe I use memorized. (again no nuts, but on that one, I just could exclude them and it worked out okay.) It seems as though the zuccini bread recipe's need the nuts with the ones I have found as the texture just doesn't turn out right if I leave them out.

In exchange, I will give you all my famous cheesecake recipe. If I can get both recipes, I will also add my Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake recipe! Both of these are my own creation so you won't find these anywhere else!!!

I hope I get somebody's mouth watering... lol

High Altitude Zucchinni Bread

7000 feet okay?

I prefer to make this as two small loaves, but one large one just takes
a little longer to bake.

1 cup sugar, divided
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup grated zucchini
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

Grease loaf pans. Dust with mixture of 2 tsp. of sugar and cinnamon.
Beat together eggs, remaining sugar, oil, yogurt, and vanilla. Stir in
remaining ingredients and mix well. Cook in 350 deg. oven for 60 - 70
minutes or until it passes the clean toothpick test. Let stand 10
minutes before removing from pan.

I use only these two when I make it so I hope you like them too.

I always substitute an equal measure of applesauce instead of the oil in baked goods. It adds moisture like the oil would but without the fat. You can't taste a difference either. I've even used that method for brownies successfully.
