Zucchini Chocolate Bread

zucchini chocolate bread

Another zucchini recipe…as dessert 🙂 This zucchini chocolate bread taste almost like a brownie, I added cocoa powder and chocolate chips into the batter and I almost didn’t taste the zucchini. I made this few times already when I visited my friends for coffee time. They didn’t believe that there were zucchini inside this cake, they only tasted the chocolate flavor. At the end everybody happy.  🙂 say hello to chocolate mania….

  1. zucchini….in dessert??! I never in a million years would have thought of this. Thanks Amallia! It’s zucchini season here in Sydney so I might have to try this!!

  2. My first ever gluten free cake was made from zucchini, and for some reason I’ve never done any baking with it since (even though the cake tasted delicious!)
    Think this is a sign that it’s time to go at it again =)
