1 cup packed shredded zucchini
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk (1%)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350°.

Press zucchini between several layers of paper towels; cover with additional paper towels. Let stand 5 minutes, pressing down occasionally.

Combine sugar and eggs in a large bowl; beat well with a wooden spoon. Stir in zucchini, buttermilk, butter, and vanilla.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Gradually add flour mixture to zucchini mixture, stirring just until moist.

Spread batter into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 53 to 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove loaf from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
