While the heat is scorching a lot of plants, the prolific zucchini is holding is still multiplying like mad. So, when Ott, A over a Latte with Ott, A announced her King Arthur’s Flour Iron Chef Challenge I knew I would be able to combine the two. And to my joy I found a Fabulous Zucchini Brownie recipe in the Farmers’ Market Favorites cookbook that Gooseberry Patch sent me for the Real Farmwives of America In Kitchen Series.
Start with a medium size zucchini. I peeled it to make shredding it easier.
Then I zipped it through the food processor to shred it.
You will need about two cups.
Then mix together 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 1/2 cup oil and 2 teaspoons of vanilla. Set aside.
I combined 2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of cocoa, 1 tsp of baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of salt.
Combine the flour, sugar and zucchini. You can also add a 1/2 cup of chopped pecans. I left them out because I took them to a get together and didn’t want anyone to miss out on them do to an allergy.
Bake on 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. I baked them for 20 minutes on convection oven setting.
And of course dusted with powdered sugar!
Gooseberry Patch and King Arthur gave me their products at no charge to try. Any opinions or thoughts are strictly mine.
