Zucchini Chip Bread

>> Wednesday, April 1, 2009

This zucchini recipe is from my mom. There's virtually nothing in life that doesn't taste better when you add a bit of chocolate! Well ... almost nothing. This recipe is fun because it uses applesauce to add moisture and great flavor.

OVEN: 350 degrees

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3 eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups shredded zucchini
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup chocolate chips

Combine the first six ingredients in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, applesauce, oil and vanilla. Stir into the dry ingredients until just moist. Fold in zucchini, nuts and chocolate chips. Pour into two greased 9x5x3" loaf pans. Bake for 55-60 minutes.

Cool in pan on a rack for 10-15 minutes. Remove from pan to finish cooling on rack.

You get to decide if this qualifies as a bread or dessert!

This sounds yummy. I think you are quite right, chocolate can only improve this.
