After a long week, I wanted to make something special. I have started a new job teaching, homeschooling my son, and playing taxi mom. It’s been a great, but I am ready for some R & R! I have been thinking about zucchini bread for a month. Why haven’t I made it sooner? Well…the dog, the husband, the son, the daughter, the laundry, the cleaning, and more laundry. Need I say more? Today, I couldn’t wait any longer.
I love baking! I also love playing with gluten free flours. I have recently started by King Arthur’s Gluten Free Mix, Measure for Measure. It’s definitely differently than other mixes I have used. It makes a much more dense batter. It’s important to note that in gluten free baking if you don’t use the same flour, you may not get the same results. When I first made this, I thought the batter was so dense and the bread wouldn’t turn out, but it did! The low calorie zucchini provides tons of moisture for this bread. It’s delicious!
