Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup spelt flour, such as Bob's Red Mill
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup safflower oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3 cups grated zucchini (from 1 large zucchini)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped (about 3/4 cup)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat four 3-by-5 1/2-inch loaf pans with cooking spray. Line each with parchment, leaving 2 inches of overhang on long sides. Spray parchment.

  2. Whisk together flours, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, applesauce, sugar, zucchini, and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until combined. Stir in chocolate.

  3. Divide batter evenly among prepared pans, filling each three-quarters full (about 1 1/2 cups a pan). Bake until a tester inserted in centers comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Let loaves cool completely on wire racks before removing from pans. Loaves can be stored at room temperature up to 2 days.

    I made this recipe and the batter was so wet! I had to add another 2 cups of flour! What's up with that? Is there a typo in the recipe?

    Glad I saw your post before I tried this recipe. Zucchini are often wet when grated, especially when on the larger size. I suspect it will work better if the gratings are left on paper toweling for awhile to absorb some of the excess liquid.
