Gluten Free Zucchini Bread
With my desire to find substitutes for gluten-filled items that don’t taste like substitutes and my current zucchini overload, I decided to try GF zucchini bread.
It is good!
So good that I thought I would take a picture of some slices of it this morning but it was gone by the time I got up. Luckily it was easy to find a picture that looks like it because, well, it looks like regular zucchini bread!
So good that my husband took a bite and asked “is this really gluten-free?”
So good that after arguing with Cadence about tasting it because it didn’t look like bread to her and it had vegetables in it, once I (playfully) stuffed a piece in her mouth she finished the rest in 60 seconds.
Really, really good. I love it when I find something that gets us that much closer to being totally GF and not feeling deprived!
Here is the recipe. I used Bob’s Red Mill flour mix because I happened to have it but I imagine you could use another mix just fine.
- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 2 Teaspoons Gluten Free Vanilla
- 1 1/2 Cups freshly shredded Zucchini
- 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
- 1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Gluten Free Flour mix*
- 1 Teaspoon Xanthan Gum
- 1 Cup Chopped Walnuts or Pecans (Optional – I don’t like them in my baked goods so I left them out)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat eggs, sugar, and oil in a large bowl with electric mixer. Add vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and xanthan gum.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir by hand to mix well. Add zucchinni and chopped nuts and stir to combine.
Pour into a greased 9×5 loaf pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 60 to 70 minutes. Until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.Published on August 12, 2010 · Filed under: Recipes;
