Use up all that zucchini you’ve got in the fridge to make Chocolate Orange Zucchini Bread. It’s so good you won’t even notice the healthy veggies in the mix. It’s super-moist, super-chocolatey and, with a hint of orange, super-tasty. This quick-bread is, well, super!
By now we’ve all seen about a 120,238,290,832 different zucchini bread recipes, haven’t we?
But, just like the notoriously prolific veggie, there’s no such thing as too much of a good thing, right? And anything with chocolate is a very good thing. That’s a fact!
This Chocolate Orange Zucchini Bread has a double dose of chocolate goodness. Not only did I replaced some of the flour with cocoa powder, I also tossed in a handful of mini chocolate chips. You know, just to ensure that we have enough chocolate in our lives.
What’s better than chocolate? Well, nothing, except maybe the combination of chocolate and orange. A hit of fresh orange zest gives this quick-bread a lovely fruity flavor and a drizzle of fresh orange juice glaze creates a sticky, gooey, delicious crust on the bread.
It all seems so decadent, but there is a whole pound of veggies in this recipe. But wait, there’s more, this bread requires less oil because of the moisture added by the zucchini. So I’d say it’s a win-win-win recipe.
