I have been using this zucchini bread recipe for as long as I can remember, recently I added in the Cacao powder and chai masala into the mix and now its perfected. Not only can you use frozen shredded zucchini but you can also freeze the bread itself.
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cups Cacao powder
3 teaspoons Chai Masala Spice
¾ teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup light brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2½ cups grated zucchini
Preheat the oven to 350˚F
Grease a 10 x 5-inch loaf pan then line the pan with a sheet of parchment paper that hangs over the edges (for ease of removal)
Whisk together first 7 ingredients
In a separate bowl, whisk the next 5 ingredients (not the zucchini)
Add zucchini to the flour and mix to coat
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix to combine.
Pour mixture into pan and bake until toothpick comes out clean, about 1 hour (all ovens are different could take 20 mins more or 20 mins left).
Let cool for 15 mins in pan before removing, then cut and serve
If freezing bread wait until completely cooled first
Do not remove excess liquid from zucchini, this makes the cake moist
