We had a low key barbecue over here with good friends and good food!
The kids swam and played and pranced around with their first sparklers! To everyone's delight the grass didn't catch on far and no one lost an eye.
This chocolate chip zucchini cake was a real hit, so I thought I'd share it with you!
I'm calling it a cake instead of a bread because, let's face it people, there's nothing bread-like about it.
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups sugar (see I told you this is cake and not bread)
1 cup veggie oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups grated zucchini
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Grate your zucchini (watch your fingers!) Our zucchini was from the garden! Mr. P. said he hated zucchini and there was no way he was gonna eat it. Guess who ended up having three pieces of zucchini cake!?!
Take your wet ingredients and mix them together in a bowl.
Now combine everything together, the dry, the wet and the shredded zucchini. Throw in the chocolate chips as well. Add more flower if it seems super wet (it should be a thicker consistency then, let's say, cupcakes batter.
Butter or oil up a bread loaf pan and bake that puppy for at least 45 minutes. Poke it with a stick or chopstick or skewer and if your tool comes out wet, leave it in longer (Mine took about an hour to bake, but my oven is wonky).
Yum! Let cool and enjoy! This cake stays for a long time in the fridge and goes great with a cup of coffee!
