I cant stop myself to bake breads from DK's Chef In You and here comes my first bake which i prepared today with zucchinis..I still remember i bookmarked this bread at Dk's space since a long, i have completely forgotten to make this bread..Since i have choosed Dk's space for this month's Tried & Tasted hosted by myself, its time for me to cook up all my bookmarked recipes..Finally i baked this zucchini crown bread today and served along with a bowl of soup with this beautiful bread for our dinner and we loved it..Also Dk went for some parmesan cheese in this bread and i loved that concept, yep adding cheese in this bread brings more tastiness to this cute looking bread, but i have made few changes in this bread, yep i went for whole wheat flour along with all purpose flour for making this bread eventhough Dk went for all purpose flour also chilly flakes instead of pepper powder..Sending to Champa's Bake off & to Susan's Yeast Spotting..
3cups Zucchini (grated)
3cups All purpose flour
2cups Whole wheat flour
1+1/tbsp Active dry yeast
4tbsp Parmesan cheese (grated)
2tbsp Olive oil
1tsp Red chilly flakes
1tbsp Sesame seeds for granishing
Place the grated zucchini in a colander and sprinkle few salt, toss and keep aside for few minutes, then pat dry the grated zucchini with a paper towels and keep aside..Mix the flours, yeast and parmesan together along with chilly flakes..now add the grated zucchini and add luke warm water to make a stiff dough..knead the dough with enough flour until they turn smooth..
Place this dough in a greased bowl and arrange in a warm place until the dough doubled their size for 1-1/2hrs..punch the dough and knead lightly,makes 5-7balls from the dough as u desire..roll well the dough balls and arrange them in a pan, brush the balls with milk and sprinkle the sesame seeds over the dough, let them sit again for 30minutes..Meanwhile preheat the oven to 400F and bake this zucchini bread for 25-30minutes until bread crust turns golden brown..
Enjoy with soup or with cream cheese..
