How’s your garden coming along? Is it bursting with zucchini? I found this recipe for a bread that isn’t as sweet as most, it has a little brown sugar and honey in place of the usual 2c of white sugar. It’s fromhttp://thecharmofhome.blogspot.com/2013/08/double-chocolate-zucchini-bread.html. Would love to hear what you think.
Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread
1/2 cup vegetable oil, plus 2 tablespoons
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 cups shredded, peeled zucchini
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease and flour a 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl beat the eggs, honey, oil, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add the salt, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa, and flour mixing well. Stir in the zucchini and 1 cup of the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Scattered the the remainder of the chocolate chips on top of the batter.
Bake the bread for 60 minutes, use a toothpick test to test for doneness.
Remove bread from oven and let it rest 15 minutes before removing it from the pan. Run a knife around the outside edge to loosen the bread from the pan. Completely cool on a wire rack and slice to eat. Store well-wrapped at room temperature.
