Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Posted on August 25, 2009. Filed under: Breads |


I don’t know why it has taken me so long to post my chocolate zucchini bread. I made it almost 2 months ago. I had 2 zucchinis at home and I wasn’t going to be cooking for a few days. So I wanted to use them in something that I could freeze and eat later. Bread! Perfect! I brought this to a 4th of July shin dig we had down at the beach. It was a hit! Don’t be scared of the flavor combo, it is really good!

Makes 2 loaves
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup of dark brown sugar
1/4 cup of white sugar
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 cup chocolate chips
2 medium zucchinis (about 3 cups) grated

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line 2 large loaf pans with parchment.

Combine the applesauce, sugars, eggs, milk and vanilla in a bowl. Stir well until it is totally combined. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Add the applesauce/egg mixture to the flour and stir gently to begin combining. Stop and add the zucchini and chocolate chips. Continue to stir to combine all the ingredients but don’t stir too much. Fill the loaf pans and bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the bread comes out clean.

When they are baked let them rest in their pans for 5 minutes and then move the breads out of the pans and onto a rack. Let them cool before slicing. Wrapped well they should last 4-5 days. They freeze well too.
