  • How to Make Low-fat Zucchini Bread:

    1. Now add the wet mixture to the dry, whisking it in 1/3rd of the flour at a time, until well mixed.
    2. Do not overmix because you don't want to develop the gluten in the flour.
    3. Grease and flour two standard-size loaf pans.
    4. Divide the batter equally between the two and smooth down the top.
    5. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
    6. Cool on a rack about 15 minutes, then slide a knife around the edges to unmold. Place right-side-up on a rack to cool.
