This is the time of year that zucchini is very prolific in our neighbors gardens. People lock their homes and cars just to avoid zucchini being placed there when they aren’t looking. One of everybody’s favorite use of zucchini is bread. This zucchini bread was inspired by a neighbor’s favorite recipe. I changed it to make it something that we could eat and enjoy. I would almost go as far as classifying this as a cake or snack cake. I reduced the amount of sugar from the original recipe. This bread stays moist for a few days unlike most gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free quick breads. You can bake it in loaf pans for quick bread or in a 9×13 for a snack cake. It doesn’t even need to be frosted. Bake some today and enjoy with your favorite cup of coffee or tea. You can add some nuts if that is how you enjoy your quick bread.

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Nut-Free and Vegan Zucchini Bread / Cake
2 Tbsp. flax meal + 6 Tbsp Hot water (combine and set aside for a few minutes to gel)
1 1/2c. sugar
1/2c oil (I used corn, but use your favorite)
1/2 c. yogurt (I used goat, but use your favorite)
2 1/2 c. shredded zucchini
1 tsp. GF vanilla
2 tsp. vinegar ( I used apple cider, but use your favorite)
1 1/2 c. sorghum flour
1 c. brown rice flour
1/2 c. millet flour
1/4 c. tapioca starch
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. GF baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
Preheat oven to 325. Grease 2 loaf pans or one 9×13 pan. Combine flax meal and hot water and let gel for a few minutes. Add sugar, oil, yogurt, zucchini, vinegar and vanilla. In another bowl combine dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Stir well. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans or into cake pan. Spread evenly. Bake in preheated oven for about 50-60 minutes for loaf pans and 30-35 minutes for the 9×13. A tooth pick inserted into the center should come out clean. Place on cooling rack for 10 minutes and then remove from pans to finish cooling on racks.
Cool completely before slicing. Enjoy with your favorite cup of coffee or tea.
