How to Make Low-fat Zucchini Bread

  • Now add the wet mixture to the dry, whisking it in 1/3rd of the flour at a time, until well mixed.
  • Do not overmix because you don't want to develop the gluten in the flour.
  • Grease and flour two standard-size loaf pans.
  • Divide the batter equally between the two and smooth down the top.
  • Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • 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.
