"This is the type of bread that comes out of the oven and you eat 6 pieces because you just can't believe how good it is (speaking from personal experience). The top is flakey and very thin and the inside is very soft and light. I got this recipe from "Nearly Normal Cooking for Gluten-Free Eating" by Jules E. D. Shepard and modified the flours and added applesauce for part of the oil to cut down on the fat. I can't wait to try more recipes from this book! UPDATE: I took this to work and everyone liked it. They said it tasted just like regular bread! It's nice to hear that from people who eat gluten everyday. It stays well in the fridge and reheats great in the microwave. It's been two days and the bread is still just as soft and pliable as when it came out of the oven!"

"These are very good and I made them exactly as directed. I will make them again but next time I will reduce the xanthan gum. I was thinking when I made it that it was more than usual for GF baking but I wanted to make it as directed. They are a little bit gelatinous in texture (gummy) and I think 1 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum or guar gum would give a much better result. I made one loaf and 24 muffins from one batch (for the person whose muffins burned on the bottom, perhaps they were filled too full -- fill them lower so they cook throughout). The kids and hubby all like it too."
"This was delicious, though I made in muffin tins and found that they burned on the bottoms even though I turned the temperature down a bit. Even so they were fantastic and I am sad to see them all eatten. Will have to make another batch soon and play with the temperature a bit. Thanks so much for sharing!"
"I did not follow the recipe exactly because I used stevia instead of the sugar... however, it should not have tasted as awful as it did. I think there is salt missing from the recipe."
"This has a nice texture and a good taste. It stayed very moist even after a day or two and only got a little chewy. But all in all a great zucchini bread."
"This is the best gluten-free bread recipe I have made. It is light and airy and you can hardly tell it's not "regular" bread. I highly recommend this recipe if you are looking for a gluten free bread. I added raisins to mine and it turned out FABULOUS!"
"I substituted potato starch for corn starch, and the texture turned out just awful. So I am not rating the recipe, as I did not make it per instructions. I will say that you do NEED to use the dough hooks on the mixer like they say! I forgot to switch them out at first and it made a mess with the dough climbing out of the bowl!"
"I made 1/3 of this recipe into muffins to give it a try and I just couldn't believe how light and fluffy they were! They taste delicious and have a nice smooth, pliable crust, which makes them great for decorating too. Thanks for posting this!"
"This was FANTASTIC! finally a GF bread that tastes like real bread! It came out light and airy and made the whole house smell great. I will definitely be making this again."
