I created my gluten-free recipe from compiling close to two dozen wheat based zucchini bread recipes (because I didn't have a wheat recipe that I really thought was good enough to convert)! It has fresh grated zucchini (and who doesn't have a lot of zucchini at this time of year), chopped walnuts and a touch of cinnamon. I added a bit of cinnamon sugar on top- but it isn't necessary. It comes from my new blog- MyGluten-FreeTable.Com. —Annalise Roberts
