Warm chocolate bread made with Fresh Florida Zucchinis…it’s Positively Delicious!


  • 1 small Florida zucchini, grated (do not squeeze out water content)
  • 1 small Florida squash, grated (do not squeeze out water content)
  • 1 cup all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup 100% unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Next add softened butter, oil, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla and mix until blended (batter will appear dry). Fold in ¾ cup of mini chocolate chips and the grated squash and zucchini until combined (do not overmix). Pour batter into buttered 9-inch loaf pan and sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top. Bake for 50 minutes, remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Serve warm or room temperature.
