Jeanie’s “Z bread” (aka zucchini bread)

This is the richest, moistest zucchini bread…I could go into rapture just thinking about it. Jeanie has identified her changes to the original recipe, but I don’t know why you’d want to make it any way other than her way. I would take a picture, but I ate it all. Oops.

3 eggs
1/2 C vegetable oil*
1/2 C unsweetened applesauce*
2 C white sugar
