    Hello Paola,
    This is such a great recipe! Makes a bread with great texture I have made it many times now. I used cinnamon and ginger spices instead of the savoury flavours and it was very yummy!
    I must admit, I misread the recipe initially and left out the sour cream the first time I made the bread. I honestly prefer it without.
    I look forward to making more of your recipes.
    Cheers!

      Ooooh good to hear Katherine! Thanks for reporting back, I’ve actually not tried it without the sour cream xo!

    Doh! I got interrupted by an important phone call while baking and was distracted and just added the butter and eggs directly into the flour mixture. I anticipate that this loaf won’t rise at well. Oh, well, it’ll still be delicious!

    I made 1.5X this recipe and baked it in a 9X13 pan, adding some erythritol, spices and nuts to make it sweet. We ate it with your buttercream fat bomb recipe (big fav) as frosting, toasted with butter or just as often plain right out of the fridge. The crumb was so sophisticated, this was easily the best ‘quick’ bread I’ve ever eaten. Just wow.

    I finally got this bread to rise by adding an extra tsp of baking powder and by separating the eggs, beating the whites until stiff and folding them in at the end with the zucchini. It tastes great and I love it toasted with Kerrygold butter. I like to add grated sharp cheddar cheese to the top before baking – delicious cheesy crust.

    Hello! I came to your blog from a facebook post with the following recommendations for this recipe in terms of add-ins. It came out absolutely wonderful thank you! This is the post:

    I made a great one the other day. I used this recipe but left out the psyllium husk (because I didn’t have any) and replaced it with more flaxmeal. I also used almond flour that contained the almond skin. I put cherry tomatoes inside of the dough.
    I also added about a half a cup of asiago cheese, dried basil and granulated onion to the dough and it came out wonderful.

    I’m sorry but this recipe did not work for me. It did not rise at all and the texture was dense and gummy. I followed the recipe exactly and used all the recommended ingredients. My baking powder is fresh and I cooked it the full 60 minutes. Not sure where I went wrong – any suggestions? I was able to salvage it somewhat by toasting it in a skillet. Thanks.

    • Paola says:

      Oh no Kate! If you used all the recommended ingredients, I would say maybe the zucchini wasn’t wrung out enough? Could’ve had still too much liquid? Otherwise you do regrind your golden flax meal right? xo

      • Kate says:

        I used my potato ricer to squeeze out the moisture from the zucchini and it was quite dry and I reground the flax and psyllium in my bullet as per instructions. I think the problem was it did not rise at all. It definitely did not have that cakelike crumb as in your pictures. The batter was very thick and I had to spoon it into the pan-definitely not pourable. Is that the way it’s supposed to be?

    Hello Paola! I am really really crazy about this recipe and my mouth is watering already. I have an issue though, I can’t find psyllium husk anywhere in store in the UK and all the recipes I see here request it. Is there any substitute for Psyllium Husk and what is the ratio? Thank you!

    Am I missing something? You have xanthum gum listed in the main ingredients but not in the recipe. Would like to clarify this befire I make it. Thanks.

      And please keep in mind that it’s 11.30pm on a Friday night here, you lucked out that I was online lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Hi Lori! As stated in step 1 of the instructions, I used a 8.5 x 4.5 inch pan. I would say go for the 8×4. xo

    Looks and sounds amazing! I love baked goods with hidden veggies ๐Ÿ™‚ Will try it for sure! Have a lovely weekend, Julie xo

    This looks great! I always have an abundance of zucchini to work with in the summer, so I hope you are working on more zucchini recipes! (Hint, a chocolate zucchini bread or cake would be amazing! ๐Ÿ˜)

    • Paola says:

      LOL yes!! We’re definitely in sync! I’m working on a chocolate zucchini loaf already ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s going to be a good one!
