Makes 1 loaf (12 slices)

  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 (4½ oz.) jar diced apple baby food
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 cup finely shredded zucchini


  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or stick margarine, melted
  • Dash of cinnamon

In a large bowl, combine first 6 ingredients. Drain apples, reserving the juice. In another bowl, beat the egg, oil and reserved juice. Stir into the dry ingredients just until blended. Fold in zucchini and apples until moistened. Pour into an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan which has been coated with nonstick cooking spray. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over top. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack.
