Ingredients

1 zucchini, grated
1 400g tin of canned apples, no added sugar (or ~1 cup stewed apples)
1 tbsp apple sauce
1/4 cup non-dairy milk (I used soy)
Egg replacer to the equivalent of 1 egg
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 - 1 cup sugar, to taste (depending on whether you want this to be neutral or sweet: I used 1 cup)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
 
~2 tbsp brown sugar, extra for topping
~1 tsp cinnamon, extra for topping

    Method

    1. Pre-heat oven to 180'C and spray a loaf tin with non-stick spray.

    2. Grate the zucchini in a food processor or by hand and set aside.

    3. Mix the dry ingredients together (flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt).

    4. Prepare your egg replacer and combine with the apple sauce and soy milk. Add to the dry ingredient mix. Stir to combine (the batter will seem too dry at this point).

    5. Add the canned apple and zucchini. Mix through well, until all ingredients are combined.

    6. Pour batter into the loaf tin and sprinkle the extra brown sugar and cinnamon over the top.

    7. Bake for 45 - 55 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
