double chocolate zucchini breadi have not baked a zucchini bread for eons and when the ABC’s theme for September was Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread (from King Arthur Flour), i couldn’t wait to get my hands onto it … literally threw the luggage down after my overseas trip and started grating zucchini….

Original recipe adapted King Arthur Flour

double chocolate zucchini bread


2 large eggs
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon espresso powder, optional
1/3 cup King Arthur All-Purpose Baking Cocoa or Dutch-process cocoa
1 2/3 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
2 cups shredded, unpeeled zucchini, gently pressed
1 cup chocolate chips

Directions (makes 8 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ loaf)

double chocolate zucchini bread– Preheat the oven to 350°F; lightly grease an 8 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ loaf pan
– In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, honey, oil, sugar, and vanilla until smooth
– Add the salt, baking soda, baking powder, espresso powder, cocoa, and flour, mixing until well combined
– Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips
– Pour the batter into the prepared pan
– Bake the bread for 65 to 75 minutes, until the loaf tests done (a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center will come out clean, save for perhaps a light smear of chocolate from the melted chips)
– Remove the bread from the oven, and let it cool for 10 to 15 minutes before turning it out of the pan onto a rack
– Cool completely before slicing; store well-wrapped, at room temperature.

Personal notes:

double chocolate zucchini bread– i used 1/6 cup of honey, and cake flour in place of APF
– i used coconut sugar and coconut oil for this loaf… the taste was heavenly
– my baking time was 75 mins

I’m linking this yummy and moist bake to the ABC for September 2013… (๑・ω-)~♥”
