Grease two 8x4 inch bread pans and preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Sift or whisk together flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, baking powder and baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a large mixing bowl, beat applesauce, vanilla, sugar and brown sugar together.
Add eggs, one at a time, fully incorporating between each addition.
Add dry ingredients until just combined. Do not overbeat. Fold in finely grated zucchini.
Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until bread is light brown and passes the toothpick test. Times will vary greatly depending on how much batter you put in each pan. Use a kitchen scale to get them equal. If not, one may be complete before the other.
Cool in pan on a rack for 20 minutes before removing from pan.
Serve with molasses butter.
