Zucchini Bread

A wonderful tea time cake. It's moist as it's made using oil,  plus it has zucchini and apple. The crunch from toasted walnuts is a perfect match for the moist crumb.

Grate the zucchini with the peel, apple you can peel and grate but I didn't.

Use all ingredients at room temperature.

I have used raw sugar but you can also use white sugar.
