How To Make Zucchini Bread – Method
- Preheat oven to 180˚C.
- Lightly brush a 22cm loaf tin with olive oil.
- Line the bottom with a baking paper “sling” so it is easy to lift the loaf out when cool.
- Squeeze the water out of the grated zucchini.
- In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini, olive oil, yoghurt, eggs, and lemon zest.
- Mix well.
- In another bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, baking powder, bicarb of soda, salt, all the spices, and the fresh rosemary.
- Heat a light drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the mushrooms until golden brown.
- Season lightly.
- Add the mushrooms to the flour mixture.
- Mix to coat the mushrooms in the flour.
- Pour in the wet ingredients and fold everything together until well mixed.
- Scrape batter into prepared tin.
- Bake for ± 1 hour until golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the middle of the bread comes out clean.
- Let cool in the loaf tin for 15 minutes.
- Remove the bread from the tin and cool on a wire rack completely before slicing.
- Serve the mushroom zucchini bread with a generous swish of herb butter and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt. Enjoy!
