  • Add it to the middle of a clean kitchen towel and gently ring out some (you don't need to get it all out) of the water.Into a large bowl sift both flours, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together.
  • Whisk the eggs and buttermilk into the cooled butter then stir in the zucchini then the cheese.
  • Add the zucchini mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined - the batter will be thick.
  • Transfer to the prepared pan and smooth out the top. Arrange the zucchini slices over top.
  • Bake until golden and a tester inserted into center comes out clean, 55-65 minutes for a loaf pan 40 - 50 minutes for a round or square pan.
