You can enjoy this usually high-calorie quick bread anytime by making it a yeast-based bread and substituting applesauce for oil. Using a bread machine takes the heavy-lift off the cook's shoulders too—just layer the ingredients and go. You can make this bread with other summer squash varieties like crookneck, pattypan, and zephyr squash. Grated carrot works well here too. This loaf freezes well and it makes a great gift from the kitchen to neighbors, colleagues, and hosts.
