Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Sue Kitchen's July 30th Market Report

Sue Renner checks in on this week's market...

Do you have zucchini boats growing by the second in your garden? Well here's a recipe (quite delectable if I may say so) to use up that zucchini in a delicious Chocolate Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread. Its also a good way to sneak veggies into your kids! I will have a few to sell today and a lot to sample. But-here's the recipe for you all to try yourselves:

2 (1oz) unsweetened chocolate-melt in microwave
3 eggs
2 C. sugar
1 C. canola oil
2 C. hand grated zucchini (squeeze all the juice out of to prevent soggy bread; don't use the food processor --it mushes it!)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 C. flour
1. tsp. each of baking soda, salt, cinnamon
3/4 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Generously grease (2) 9x5 loaf pans (or 4 mini loaf pans). Pre-heat your oven to 350F.

Cream the sugar,oil and vanilla, Add the melted chocolate. Beat in each egg separately. Fold in the zucchini.

Mix the dry ingredients together and add to the wet mixture until just moistened. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Bake @ 350F for one hour (large loaves), 40 minutes for mini loaves; or 'til a toothpick comes out clean.

Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top while still warm. Cool for 10 minutes then remove from pan.

Delicious warm or cold. Freezes easily.


See you later today at the market.I'll have pies, cookies, cinnamon rolls.....and of course zucchini bread!
