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!)
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
