Weird, I just checked the recipe I use and it is almost exactly like this. I don't use any oil though, just 1 cup applesauce. And my recipe is 2 cups white sugar, not 1 white and 1 brown, but I'm going to try that. Any my recipe is just 2 cups zucchini but I usually just put more anyway.

This is a recipe I found that I changed a bit. I think mainly I added some brown sugar instead of white and switched out half the applesauce so maybe we did have the same recipes to begin with.
