Make it Monday - Zucchini bread - gluten free
One wonderful thing to do with a squash and zucchini is to put it into a bread.
For this Make it Monday, I wanted to make a gluten free bread, sorta of sweet, but not really.
I have mentioned an issue with gluten free baking is gluten normally provides the structure for baked goods. When you have a single gluten free flour, you end up with a crumbly mess instead of bread.
Other ways to give bread structure, have more than one type of gluten free flour in it and/or use eggs too.
Zucchini Bread Recipe
2 cups Almond flour
1/4 cup Tapioca flour
2 tablespoons Coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon orange peel
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Oil a 9 X 5 inch pan
Grate zucchini finely. Can leave the skin on. Squeeze the zucchini of excess water. Then pat dry with a paper towel to remove the excess water.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.
Beat the eggs into a froth, along with other wet ingredients.
Stir in the grated zucchini
Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients until it resembles a cake batter.
Put the batter into the pan
Bake for 45-50 minutes.
Check the doneness of the bread by inserting a toothpick into the bread. When it comes out clean, the bread is done.
Cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.
Wait for 3 hours or overnight before slicing.
Store in refrigerator for 4 days in an airtight container or ziploc bag.
Freezer - slice and put in a ziploc bag - can store for 1 to 2 months.
A not too sweet bread. If you like a sweeter bread, add 1 cup of maple syrup.
