Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread : ABC September 2013

Our bake at Avid Baker's Challenge (ABC) for this month is Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread, recipe from King Arthur Flour. ABC is baking from the recipes of King Arthur Flour's website until December. 


This cake may not look very pretty, but it really is very good! It rises so well, I thought that the pan would be too small, but in the end, it turned out great.


It has all the goodness of zucchini, nobody would ever think there's zucchini in it! And the deliciousness of cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Can you see the grated zucchini peeping out from the slices, it looks yellow but I've used green zucchinis! This cake uses oil instead of butter and the sweetness is just right, though I did reduce about 2 tablespoons from the half cup of brown sugar. The only substitute I made was, to replace the honey with golden syrup, as I do not like to use honey in cakes. It works out great with the golden syrup.


A very moist, chocolaty and delicious cake/bread.

For the full recipe, please refer to King Arthur Flour's website, here.

  16. Your loaf turned out beautifully Joyce! I wish I'd thought of using golden syrup instead of honey - it must have given the cake more of a caramel flavour.

  27. Interesting, Joyce! Zucchini in a chocolate bread? That reminds me of your mushroom chocolate cookies :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Joyce, I think I've seen the same recipe from Mich's place before or someone else, can't really remember now but hey, how many types of zucchini can you find in Malaysia? In Sydney, I always find 1 type, which is green in colour so very interesting when you mentioned that you used green zucchini for this recipe. I bet that every chocolate lover will love your double chocolate zucchini bread here!

  30. Zucchini in a cake? This is a peculiar combination but I'm sure it definitely didn't taste like zucchini at all. Haha an interesting combination that would pluck up some courage to try I believe. Joyce, I would try it :)

  32. Joyce, thank you so much for linking up this delicious zucchini bread with "Bake your own Bread - Il cestino del pane". It mady my mouth water ;-)
    I love zucchini in every possible way, but I'm almost sure that the addition of "double chocolate" makes this recipe a winner!
    Go zucchini, go!
