Zucchini Corn Bread - Bon Appetit

Zucchini Corn Bread (adapted from Bon Appetit)


1/2 cup oil

2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 large zucchini (about 10 ounces)
1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup medium-grind cornmeal


Position a rack in the middle of oven and preheat to 350°.Greaser a 9 x 5 x 3" loaf pan.

Combine eggs, oil and buttermilk.

Trim zucchini ends. Thinly slice five 1/8" rounds from 1 end of zucchini and reserve for garnish. 

Coarsely grate remaining zucchini. 

Add to bowl with butter mixture and stir until well blended.

Sift  flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda into a large bowl. Whisk in cornmeal. 

Add zucchini mixture; fold just to blend (mixture will be very thick). 

Transfer batter to prepared pan and smooth top. Place reserved zucchini slices atop batter down center in a single layer.

Bake bread until golden and a tester inserted into center comes out clean, 55-65 minutes. Let cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan; let cool completely on a wire rack.

Store airtight at room temperature.

  5. I agree with Jamie. What a good recipe for using summer corn and zucchini. I like corn bread that has "stuff" added to it.
