Chocolate bread with zucchini

A big shout-out for this recipe to Simply Recipes. I have made a tag, actually, so you can quickly find all the recipes that I got from Elise Bauer’s blog. Visit the blog. You’ll love it. I like her recipes because they match my family’s taste, they are on the healthier side and taste great. How could I resist a chocolate bread made with zucchini?! You ask, “and did it taste any good”. I answer, “ask my kids”.  They enjoyed it to the last piece and I loved the opportunity to include some zucchini in their dessert! I substituted the almond extract with vanilla extract because my daughter has a nut allergy. Other than that, I followed the recipe to the letter.



  • 4 cups zucchini, shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

How to make: Grate the zucchini and let it stay in a strainer until you are ready to use it.  Beat the sugar with the eggs. Add the melted butter, coffee, and vanilla extract. In another bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Combine the zucchini with the sugar. Add the flour mix to the zucchini in 2-3 batches. Butter one (mine was long)  or two loaf pans, add the batter, and bake at pre-heated 350F/180C oven for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the bread cool down, slice, and serve!
