For years now, especially during the fall, I’ve been baking zucchini bread using regular baking flour. The recipe I used was from Betty Crocker’s Cookbook. With several zucchini leftover from this past growing season, I wanted to attempt to make a gluten-free version instead. I’ve been using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour for several other recipes and have had great success. This flour didn’t disappoint and the gluten-free zucchini bread I prepared came out delicious and pretty close to the real thing.
I conveniently found this recipe on the Bob’s Red Mill website. If you would like to try this recipe for yourself, I’m sure you’ll find this bread to be moist and quite tasty. Zucchini bread makes for a quick breakfast or a nice afternoon snack. My favorite way to enjoy this treat is in the afternoon with a cup of hot tea.
I also found this nice Stash holiday variety pack to enjoy in the afternoons. These flavors are enjoyable during the fall months and will also bring a little spice to your Christmas as well.
3 Cups Grated Zucchini (About 2 Medium)
1 Cup Oil
2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
3 Cups Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Flour
1 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoon Xanthan Gum
2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
1 Cup Chopped Walnuts
1 Cup Raisins
Peparing the Baking Pans
Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Butter two 8×4-inch loaf pans or four to six mini loaf pans, or spray with pan spray.
Making the Mix
In a large bowl, combine zucchini, oil, eggs, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, xanthan gum, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. Add chopped walnuts and raisins and mix well.
Baking the Loaves
Next, divide the batter evenly between prepared pans and spread tops to even out. Bake for sixty minutes for large loaves or forty-five minutes for small loaves.
Test with a toothpick to make sure the loaves are completely baked.
Now that your zucchini bread is done, go ahead and enjoy a warm slice with a nice cup of hot tea.
