Sometimes baking makes me feel such a sense of self-worth, I feel like I should've really opened myself a bakery and baked bread every single day. Really.
Tonight I made this zucchini bread. Which is really very much like cake. Delicious chocolatey cake. Mmmmmmm.
Does it count as a veggie. A healthy baked good. If you stuff it full of chocolate chips, melted chocolate, and a couple of extra tablespoons of cocoa powder - just to be safe?
How about if your flour is 1/2 wheat and you sprinkled in a tablespoon or so of flax seed just for fun?
It's a fuzzy line between healthy and not. The two cups of sugar make it a little less fuzzy, but still. It's so stinkin' delicious and there are 2+ cups of zucchini in there!
There are also three plastic freezer jars of grated zucchini (how much do I love my food processor?) to make three more batches of this deliciousness just waiting in my freezer for another day. Mmmmmmmm.
Oh. I did really add the flax seed. And a little sour cream. A dash extra of zucchini. And two or so tablespoons of cocoa powder. So I'd say I didn't follow that recipe exactly.
Go on now. Use those zucchinis that you let get way too big. I did. And they worked perfectly.
Did I mention - mmmmmmmmmmmm.
