Grate up 2 cups of zucchini. Don't purée it - you need the stringy consistency. And don't grate by hand!! - unless you want carpal tunnel and feel like grating zucchini until next Tuesday haha

My gluten free xanthan gum. Even more expensive... But probably the most essential item for gluten free cooking. It helps make GF baking seem completely normal - moist and fluffy. Awesome stuff.

Usually I use 2 cups of BROWN sugar. But I fell short this time and had to use refined white sugar for most of the measure. Boo.

In they go. Bake for 40-60 mins. But this cooking time depends completely on the strength of your oven. I usually do a knife test at the 30 min mark and end up taking them out after 45.

I really want to make sure the bread is moist, fluffy and not overcooked, so I always do a knife test. Some people like their breads a bit drier - so it's your call as to how long you bake it for.

Looks good to me! Looks a bit flat, but that's because I put a little less batter in this bigger pan so that it baked at the same rate as the smaller one. trust me - it's fluffy, moist and delish. YUM
