Double Chocolate Zucchini Loaf Cake

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

This loaf is all but gone at this point. Baking for my husband is a challenge. His mother you see, while a great cook and hard worker at preserving the foods that grew in the garden and family orchard, was not a baker. Not because she did not know how to bake, baked goods simply were not regularly served. Through the years my husband grew fond of purchased bakery treats. But this delicious loaf, he really enjoyed it!

This is called zucchini bread, on the kitchn, but the tender crumb and delicious taste are to my way of thinking, more like a wonderful loaf cake.

adapted from: the kitchn
makes one loaf
350-degree oven

2 c grated zucchini

1/2 cup (4 ounces) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup (7 ounces) granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2/3 cup (1 ounce) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/3 cups (6 ounces) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Grate the zucchini, place in a colander to drain excess fluid, set aside. 

Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. 

I did find one of the new scraper mixing paddles at the store the other day, and I must say I really like how it works!

Add vanilla, cocoa, salt, and baking powder, mix well. Add drained zucchini and flour, combine well. Stir in chocolate chips. 

Spoon into prepared 8x4  inch loaf pan, bake 50-60 minutes or until done in your oven.

  2. This loaf looks so delicious. . .I can almost smell it from here. As much as I love vegetables, I have never baked with them, not even a carrot cake. I think I am overdue to try it and this recipe looks like a great place to start. --Rocquie

  3. Oh yes! I make something similar. Isn't it great?? Thanks for reminding me to get baking with my zucchini!
