Hey there! It’s been a LONG time since I’ve shared a recipe around here! I’m working on ever so SLOWLY compiling all of my favorite recipes so that I can turn them into a family cookbook! When I realized that I’ve never shared this one I HAD to get my double chocolate zucchini bread on the blog for you all!
Over the Summer my friend Tara gave me two HUGE zucchini from her garden (not the little ones in these pictures). I love getting these because you get so much more zucchini out of them than the little ones at the grocery store. Weirdly I’m allergic to touching zucchini, but I feel fine when I eat it?! Thankfully my mom peeled, chopped, and processed the two huge zucchini’s for me when she was here. All together I had four processed cups from those two huge zucchini so I doubled this recipe and ended up with seven loaves.
When this recipe was doubled it completely FILLED my biggest bowl! My husband always jokes that I’m chronic “bowl overfiller”. If you weren’t doubling I’m sure you could make it in a kitchenaid mixer bowl. I didn’t have any mini chocolate chips on hand, but I do love using them because I think it ensures that there’s chips in every bite!
This recipe freezes really well. Once the loaves are cool I wrap each one in parchment paper, and then I put 3 loaves in each Gallon freezer bag. To thaw them I just set one on the counter for about 6 hours. We usually serve it sliced and warmed up with a little butter.Print
