zucchini love

Lately, my house has felt like a zucchini bread factory. Over the past two weeks, I have come into possession of not one, not two, but four monster-sized zukes like the one above. These babies were massive. Seriously--after prepping and shredding two of them, I had 12 cups of shredded zucchini. With most recipes averaging one cup of shredded zucchini per loaf, I was reeling at the number of loaves that would translate into. In one of those crazy serendipitous moments, I picked up the summer issue of Knitscene to realize it included a recipe for Selma's Chocolate Zucchini Bread. Since the recipe calls for a ton of zucchini and produces nearly four loaves in one batch, I knew I had found my solution for dealing with my zucchini windfall.

The verdict? Yummmmm .... I highly recommend! Selma's Chocholate Zucchini Bread is definitely going to become one of my regular go-to recipes. I ended up making one batch, which produced two large loaves, one regular-sized loaf, and several mini loaves. The rest of the zucchini is hanging out in the freezer, frozen in two cup increments, ready and waiting for a craving for zucchini bread to strike this winter.
