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


Hey !

Here is the recipe of the zucchini, walnut, and goat cheese bread I made for the Easter Picnic 😊 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 it /kɛk/, or “khek” maybe), but we only use it for (mostly savoury) loafs with this specific shape, regular cakes (like birthday cakes) are called “gâteau”.
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 😔
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 !


• Here are the ingredients :

  • Zucchini 
  • 75g – (1/2 cup) of walnut flour  and 75g – (1/2 cup) of rice flour (or regular all purpose flour)
  • 200g – (1 cup) of fresh Goat cheese 
  • 1 sachet of Baking powder
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil 
  • 120 ml (1/2 cup) of warm milk
  • 100g (1 cup) of Rasped Cheese (I used Gruyère, 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 🥒 in small dices, or rasp it if it’s easier. 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 it in 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. 🧀

4) Pour into the baking pan 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. 🍞

· • Bake for 45 minutes at 200°C / 392°F • ·

5) Eat

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 ! ✨


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 ? 😄

See ya ! 💛

  1. Hey Oriana,
    fantastic recipe! I´ll 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 ! 😊 And I’ll be doing more for sure, best wishes 💕


    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 😊


    1. I’m glad you liked it ! 💗 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 ! 😊
