Cook's Hideout: Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

August 17, 2012

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

We begin the 3rd week for Blogging Marathon today and my theme for next 3 days is "Kid Friendly recipes with Chocolate" for Kid's Delight event. I know first hand how much my kid loves chocolate. I mentioned about his LOVE for all things chocolate a number of times here and so when I saw the theme with chocolates, I thought this what could be better than making more chocolate delicacies for my son.

Since all these recipes are going to Vaishali's Kid's Delight - Chocolate event, they have to be eggless. So for today's chocolate delight, I made this "Double chocolate Zucchini Bread" from King Arthur flour site. The original recipe had eggs, but I used egg replacer to make it eggless.

All-purpose Flour - 1 cup
Whole-wheat pastry flour - 2/3 cup
Unsweetened Cocoa powder - 1/3 cup
Espresso powder - ½tsp (optional, but recommended)
Baking Soda - ½tsp
Baking Powder - ½tsp
Salt - 1tsp
Eggs Replacer - 2tbsp egg replacer mixed with 6tbsp water (or use 2 eggs or replace with 2 flax eggs)
Honey - 1/3 cup
Brown Sugar - ½cup
Vegetable Oil - ½cup
Vanilla Extract - 1tsp
Zucchini - 2cups, unpeeled, shredded and slightly squeezed
Chocolate chips - 1 cup (I used both white & semi-sweet chocolate chips)

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9"x5" loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir in eggs (egg replacer), honey, sugar, oil and vanilla extract until well combined. 
  • Next add salt, flours, cocoa powder, espresso powder (if using), baking soda, baking powder, mixing until well combined.
  • Next add the shredded zucchini and chocolate chips. Mix until evenly distributed.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 65-75 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the middle of the pan comes out clean.
  • Cool the bread in the pan for 10-15 minutes before turning it over onto a wire rack to cool completely. 

Enjoy with a glass of milk as a snack or a quick breakfast. I store cake in a air-tight container in the fridge and this was my son's afternoon snack for almost a week.
