I attempted making zucchini bread yesterday and had no all purpose flour so I used self-rising.....Have you ever seen that episode of "I Love Lucy" when she baked bread and it rose and rose until it finally exploded? Well, that happened to me....all over the oven, lol. :shock:

What did I do wrong? I omitted the salt and baking powder from the recipe :huh:

I'm not sure..what was the whole recipe and what did you actually do?

diy self-rising is 1.25 tsp baking powder per cup of AP - could that be too much for the recipe?

It called for 3 1/4 cups of flour. I omitted the salt and the baking soda since the self-rising flour has salt and baking powder in it. The rest of the recipe I followed...

>>3 - 1/4 c flour

that amt of self rising would have about 4 tsp of baking powder - which I'd say is on the high side for a zucchini type (ie heavy/moist) bread.
