 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 c Walnut pieces
  • 2 md Zucchini, unpeeled, ends
  • -trimmed
  • 1/4 c Cornstarch
  • 1/4 c Brown rice flour
  • 1 ts Baking powder

The next three recipes are for cakes made without wheat flour. This
first one uses rice flour, but no wheat.

Preheat oven to 350F. Butter the sides of an 8 x 2-inch cake pan,
line the base with a circle of baking parchment and butter the
parchment. Using a nut mill, grind walnuts to flour and set aside.
Using the same nut mill, grind zucchini into fine shreds. There
should be 1 cup, firmly packed, or 6 ounces. Place in a sieve and
press out the liquid. Combine cornstarch, rice flour, baking powder
and salt; set aside.

Beat eggs with sugar until lemon-colored and very thick. A lifted
beater should leave a slowly dissolving trail of batter. Using a
large rubber spatula, lightly fold in grated walnuts and minced lemon
peel, as though mixing a souffle. Fluff up zucchini shreds and fold
in. Sift cornstarch-flour mixture over batter and quickly fold in,
retaining as much volume as possible.

Pour into prepared pan (the batter will be loose) and bake for 40
minutes, until a tester comes out dry. Let cool in pan for 10
minutes before unmolding onto a rack. Peel off paper, reverse onto
rack right side up, and let cool completely.

Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
