Let’s see, then, how to prepare an excellent whole wheat zucchini bread and some useful tips to get a great result and win over our guests with a genuine and delicious product.
To begin the preparation of whole wheat zucchini bread you must first mix together milk, water and brewer's yeast.
In the meantime, dedicate yourself to zucchini. These, in fact, will be deprived of the two ends, washed and dried carefully and then grated using a grater with large holes. Sprinkle the zucchini with salt and let it rest for 30-45 minutes and then squeeze it carefully so that the excess vegetation liquid is lost.
At this point resume your leavened dough and add little by little all the other ingredients, including the well-squeezed zucchini. Mix everything well until you have obtained a ball of very elastic and compact dough. The amount of flour could vary depending on the consistency of the zucchini. In fact, if these still contain some liquid it may be necessary to add some other flour. It is important, however, that the result is a ball of elastic and compact dough, especially not more sticky.
The dough should be placed inside a bowl, covered with a rag and a transparent film and placed in the oven off but with light on for about two hours so that it can leaven.
When it has doubled its initial volume, you can put it on a pastry board, give the shape you want and let it rise in the oven at night, but with the light on for about 40 minutes.
Alternatively you can lay your dough directly into a plumcake mold, previously sprinkled with oil, and then in this case it will take only two hours of levitation.
The whole wheat zucchini bread is then ready to be placed in preheated oven at 220 ° C for about 40-45 minutes or until your bread will be well browned on the surface.
Once ready, the bread will be baked, left aside to cool and then served to your guests.
