Hi Im Katherine Lee from About.com and this is Melissa Iwai from thehungryartist.wordpress.com.
Ingredients for Chocolate Zucchini Bread
This is a really tasty, moist, chocolatey bread. Double chocolate zucchini bread with a surprise ingredient. So first we start with a cup and a half of flour.
And its just all purpose flour?
And then we'll just add half a teaspoon of baking soda. Quarter teaspoon of baking powder. Quarter teaspoon of salt. Half a teaspoon of cinnamon, and a third of a cup of unsweetened cocoa powder. And Im just going to whisk this together until there aren't any lumps.
Healthy Hidden Ingredients for the Dessert
This is half a cup of cooked spinach thats been drained. Im adding two tablespoons of oil. And we're going to add half a cup of unsweetened applesauce. One mashed ripe banana. Two beaten eggs. A teaspoon of vanilla extract. two thirds cup granulated white sugar. And one cup of shredded zucchini.
Wow there's even more green, that's incredible.
Ok so now that you have all of your lovely wet ingredients together, we're just going to add the bowl of dry ingredients. So this is half a cup of chocolate chips that you're just going to fold in. I just like to sprinkle the remaining chips on top. This is kind of like frosting without the extra heavy cream or butter. And so now we just place this in a preheated oven set to 325 degrees, and you bake it for about an hour. So this is the finished product.
Oh its so yummy looking. I cant wait to try it. Thanks for watching. For more, go to about.com.
