Chocolate Zucchini Bread for Obama

Tasty & inviting on the outside but still nutritious & healthy.

This bread was baked in honour of Obama’s Election today. Chocolate Zucchini bread is brown on the outside and green on the inside!

So tasty and inviting; yet nutritious and healthy at the same time! Eat it for breakfast; but don’t forget to call it chocolate cake with your children…

– kids freak when you hide veggies in anything!

This recipe was slightly influenced by the fact that my pantry was missing a few things (i.e., oil).

However, one thing that was very present, was a delicious Zucchini from Homegrown Foods in Hong Kong!

Preheat Oven to 350/180

Mix wet ingredients together:

2 cups grated zucchini (one large zucchini!)

3 eggs

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

add enough yoghurt to make 1 cup

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 Tbsp honey

2 Tbsp molasses

Whisk dry ingredients together thoroughly:

1 cup sugar

2  cups white flour

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

sift together first & add:

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp sea salt

½  tsp cinnamon

dash of cayenne

Gently mix wet with dry until JUST mixed.

Finally, fold in 1/3 cup chocolate chips

Add to a pre-buttered loaf pan

Bake until a knife/toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Cool for 10 minutes in the pan; invert and cool completely. We couldn’t wait and it was crumbly after only five minutes. Cool it and it slices so fine!

My Cantonese Class enjoyed some slices = “Ceoi juk gwaa” gou
