Every summer I have heard this comment: "When you get some zucchini you need to make some of that chocolate bread." Yes. This is Grumpy's favorite quick bread.
I found this recipe on allrecipes.com way back in 2005 when we had our first garden with a ton of zucchini. I made it as written the first time and used mini chocolate chips but Grumpy is a big fan of white chocolate so the next time I made it I used white chocolate instead. That is when it became his favorite.
When mom gave me some of their first zucchini the other night I knew the first thing I would do would be to make Grumpy of of this bread. The recipe makes 2 loaves - so I made one big loaf and two mini loaves. Today he is going to drop one of each mini loaves off to his dad and to his mom.
Grumpy's mom has been enjoying homemade treats. I love the look on her face when she sees that we have brought her a goodie! lol. BTW, she is doing really well. I doubt she will be going back to work but over the last few months she has recuperated quite well from her strokes!
If you would like to make this recipe you can find it by clicking HERE. I suggest you don't change a thing unless you want to mix up the chips going in. I think cinnamon chips would work really well too as the recipe does also include cinnamon. :-)
