A colleague brought this in one day for someone’s birthday. I grow zucchini in my garden so I had a lot of opportunities to experiment with the recipe. My mother-in-law loves it, and she doesn’t even know that it’s also pretty good for you. —Sally Newton, Smethport, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Coat two 8x4-in. loaf pans with cooking spray; dust with flour, tapping out extra.
In a large bowl, whisk the first eight ingredients. In another bowl, whisk eggs, egg whites, buttermilk, oil and vanilla until blended. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened. Fold in zucchini, chocolate chips and walnuts.
Transfer to prepared pans. Bake 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Loosen sides from pans with a knife. Cool in pans 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
