1/2 cup unsalted butter

1 large zucchini

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1 + 1/4 cup medium-grind cornmeal

1 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon coarse salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded


Preheat oven to 350° F. Butter a standard loaf pan or a 9" round or square baking pan.

Melt the butter and allow to cool.Meanwhile trim off the zucchini ends and thinly slice 6
or 7 rounds off the end for garnish. Coarsely grate the rest.

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.
