DIY – Zucchini, Walnut & Goat cheese Bread (gluten free)


Hey !

Here is the recipe of the zucchini, walnut, and goat cheese breadย I made for the Easter Picnic ๐Ÿ˜Š It’s gluten free because my mother is allergic to gluten, so for her to be able to eat it, I made it with a mix of walnut flour and rice flour !
I had a really hard time finding out how to call this in English, in French we call that a “cake” (we pronounce itย /kษ›k/, orย “khek” maybe), but we only use it for (mostly savoury) loafsย with this specific shape, regular cakes (like birthday cakes) are called “gรขteau”.
So i’m confused here, someone please enlighten me !

Also, I’m so sorry I don’t have step by step pictures as I use to do to show you exactly how I did it ๐Ÿ˜”
It wasn’t really planned I kind of improvised it, and I was running late so no time for pictures ! Afterwards I thought “Oh, that might interest my dear readers”, so here I am.

But I hope you’ll enjoy the recipe anyways !


โ€ข Here are the ingredients :

  • 1ย Zucchiniย 
  • 75g – (1/2 cup) of walnut flourย  andย 75g – (1/2 cup) of rice flourย (or regular all purpose flour)
  • 200g – (1 cup) of fresh Goat cheeseย 
  • 1 sachet of Baking powder
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oilย 
  • 120 ml (1/2 cup) of warm milk
  • 100g (1 cup) of Rasped Cheese (I used Gruyรจre, but it can be any rasped cheese)
  • A handful of whole unpitted olives
  • A pinch of pepper and salt

1) Cut the Zucchini & the Olives

Cut the zucchini ๐Ÿฅ’ in small dices, or rasp it if it’s easier.ย You can cook it a bit in a pan if you like your zucchini well cooked, but I like it kind of raw so I just let it cook in the cake. Cut the olives in small pieces.

2) Mix the dry stuff

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl : the two flours, the baking powder, the salt and pepper.

3) Add the wet stuff

Add the eggs, mix them a bit with the dry ingredients. Warm up the milk, and then start adding itย inย bowl while you mix the whole thing with a whisk. Whisk well, and then continue adding the rest of the ingredients : the olive oil, the rasped cheese, the zucchini the olives, the goat cheese. Mix with a spatula or a spoon to not break too much the cheese dices.ย ๐Ÿง€

4) Pour into the baking panย and bake

Pour the mix into a rectangular baking pan, I use a silicon one because its really easy to remove the bread from it. ๐Ÿž

ยท โ€ข Bake for 45 minutes at 200ยฐC / 392ยฐFย โ€ข ยท

5) Eat !ย 

Here is the picture I showed you in my Easter Picnic post, it was perfect to transport and so practical to eat with no table !ย โœจ


I always try to find some new recipes when I cook for my mother, since she can’t eat gluten sometimes it’s hard to find a nice tasting flour. But this walnut and rice mix was really tasty, and consistence was great too !

What do you think about it ?ย ๐Ÿ˜„

See ya !ย ๐Ÿ’›

  1. Hey Oriana,
    fantastic recipe! Iยดll definitely try it out. Funny, I just uploaded a glutenfree rhubarb and apple crumble recipe this evening, because my best friend is gluten intolerant as well. Maybe your mum might like that, too? If you like, I have some very tasty gluten free cake recipes. or, the other way around, please do more recipes like that!

    1. Thank you for stopping by ! That crumble sounds delicious, it’s so cool that you do gluten free recipes, I’ll check them out ! ๐Ÿ˜Š And I’ll be doing more for sure, best wishes ๐Ÿ’•


    1. That sounds nice ! Of course you can use what you want, maybe diced ham/chicken for meat, or some bell peppers/dried tomatoes to keep it vegetarian ! Maybe add a bit more oil or a bit of butter if you don’t use any cheese ๐Ÿ˜Š


    1. I’m glad you liked it ! ๐Ÿ’— I hope your daughter will enjoy it too. It can be so hard sometimes for the people who have these kind of diets, all we can do is help them a little with our recipes ! ๐Ÿ˜Š
