What is Chocolate Zucchini Bread?
Have you ever wanted to try a bizarre-sounding, but incredibly delicious, dessert bread? Chocolate zucchini bread may be right up your alley… but what is it? I’m sure you’ve already figured out that zucchini, “bread”, and chocolate are all involved. I’ve never imagined combining all three of those, though. After digging up some recipes and experimenting, I’ve discovered it’s actually quite scrumptious!
With the way it tends to turn out for me, it gives me the feeling of eating a healthy brownie.. maybe?
It also seems pretty obvious that it is meant to be enjoyed as a dessert, but hey, if you don’t like things too sweet, there are plenty of ways to alter chocolate zucchini bread recipes to your liking.
Let’s go ahead and look at what we’re going to be working with if we prepare this dish, specifically so that we can imagine exactly what it might taste like. I had a really hard time imagining the delectable taste without seeing a list of ingredients first, myself.
Standard Ingredients for Chocolate Zucchini Bread:
- Zucchini (shredded or grated)
- Baking Chocolate and/or Cocoa
- Baking Soda
- Chocolate Chips (for extra chocolate!)
Thinking about combing those ingredients definitely makes me think of brownies now. Sounds pretty yummy, doesn’t it? So if we had all these things readily available, what would we do? Surprise! We’d preheat the oven and prepare our ingredients. I was curious as to whether or not we would just slice the zucchini, but shredding it or grating it is probably best! It might not turn out too wonderful otherwise. After we do all that, we combine all our ingredients, followed by the zucchini.
Bring out a loaf pan or deep baking dish and coat it next. Pour the combined ingredients into the dish and pop it into the oven.
Let it bake and then hopefully it turns out a little something like this:
That sure does look fantastic, doesn’t it?! Enjoy, and thanks for figuring out what chocolate zucchini bread is with us.
