Chocolate chip zucchini bread recipe

17 Oct

With the holidays around the corner, the festive baking season begins. This year I will be experimenting with different recipes to create gift plates of treats and goodies to present to our friends and family during holiday get-togethers. If you are on a tight budget this is a great way to stay frugal with your money and no one feels left out. I’m continuing with a zucchini bread recipe courtesy of Paula Deen.

What you’ll need

Tools:

  • 1 or 2 5×9 loaf pans (depending on what size loaf you would like)
  • sifter
  • grater
  • cooking spray, such as PAM
  • whisk or electric mixer

Ingredients:Chocolate chip zucchini bread

  • 3 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 cups of grated zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon of orange zest
  • A teaspoon or 2 of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of chopped walnuts

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Begin by combining all of the dry ingredients, except the sugar, chocolate chips, and nuts, and sift them. Next, whip the eggs and sugar together and then begin to add the remaining ingredients, ending with the dry ingredients.

Spray your loaf pan(s) with cooking spray before pouring in the batter. Bake for 50 minutes. Allow to cool once done.
