Ingredients
  

  • 2 1/2 cups flour + 1 T.
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. salt
  • 8 T. butter cold & sliced
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 T. honey
  • 1 cup zucchini finely grated & pressed dry
  • 8 oz. sharp cheddar shredded
  • 1 T. fresh thyme minced

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F / 200°C.
  • Mix 2 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the cold butter and quickly work into coarse crumbles.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk yogurt, egg, and honey until smooth. Then fold into dry ingredients just until combined.
  • Toss zucchini, 6 oz. cheddar, and thyme with 1 T. of flour until coated, then gently work into dough.
  • Turn dough onto a clean work surface and shape into an 8-inch circle. Cut into 12 wedges and place each on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar.
  • Bake at 400°F / 200°C for 20-22 minutes, until tops are golden brown.

Notes

Two large (or three small) zucchini yields about 1 cup, after grating and pressing dry with paper towels.
