ZUCCHINI SPICE BREAD





ZUCCHINI SPICE BREAD
We finished this bread in less than a day!  Great to have alongside a nice cup of tea or coffee. You can get away with adding 1/4 cup (60 mL) less grated zucchini as that is what the original high-carb recipe used.  I preferred this bread once completely cooled to room temperature.  Then I could not get enough of this delicious loaf.  Great use of zucchini.


3 eggs
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or steviato equal 1 cup sugar (250 mL)
1/2 cup light olive oil (125 mL)
1/4 cup granulated erythritol, OR (60 mL)
2 tbsp coconut oil (30 mL)
1 tsp unflavored gelatin (5 mL)
1 tbsp vanilla extract (15 mL)
13/4 cups Low-Carb Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, (425 mL)
  OR Grain-Free. Gluten-Free Bake Mix, OR Keto Bake Mix
11/2 tsp cinnamon (7 mL)
1 tsp baking powder (5 mL)
1/2 tsp baking soda (2 mL)
3/4 tsp nutmeg (3 mL)
1/4 tsp ground ginger (1 mL)
1/4 tsp salt (1 mL)
1/8 tsp ground cloves (0.5 mL)
2 cups finely grated zucchini (500 mL)

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

In bowl with mixer or in food processor, combine eggs, liquid sweetener, olive oil, erythritol, coconut oil, vanilla extract and gelatin; process. 
In medium bowl, combine and mix well Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, ginger, salt and cloves.  Add to wet ingredients; process.  Stir in zucchini.  Spread evenly in well-greased nonstick 8 x 4-inch (20 x 10 cm) loaf pan (if pan is old, line with parchment paper or foil and keep the sides high, so that you can simply lift the baked loaf out of the pan with ease – cut down with a scissors at corners to make it fit).  Bake 45 to 55 minutes, or until cake tester or dinner knife comes out clean.  Cool in pan on wire rack.  Loosen edges with a knife and try to maneuver the knife underneath the loaf a bit in places and then invert (if you haven’t used parchment paper).  Cool completely before slicing and enjoy with butter, if desired.
