Chocolate Cheesecake Zucchini Bread

Its that time of year when it is finally safe to turn on the oven without the risk of heating up the whole house. At my new job one of the ladies has the most amazing garden and keeps bringing in zucchini every Friday. Many of the ladies have been bringing in variations of zucchini bread.

  • The healthy kind subbing honey for sugar and using apple sauce
  • The mix with carrots
  • The spicy kind with a mix of spices.

So as to not be out done this weekend of course I had to give it the Quaintrelle Treatment. For me zucchini bread is just a vehicle for chocolate just like carrot cake is a vehicle for cream cheese icing.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the skin from the zucchini and grate. Add all of the ingredients for the bread to the bowl and mix with an electric mixer till blended.

Melt down the chocolate in the microwave 30seconds at a time. Add the cream cheese and mix with an electric mixer. Add the powdered sugar and 2 tbsp of milk to thin out the mixture.

Spray the mini loaf pan with bakers joy or flour and butter. Fill them about ¾ of the way and spoon in about 1tbsp of the chocolate mixture. Take a knife and marble the chocolate into the bread mixture. Bake in the oven for 30min and allow to cool in the pan for 5min before turning over to a wire rack.

I hope you all are having an amazing holiday weekend! It seems like my September list is working and I plan to keep it up! Stick with me QT’s!

      You definitely should give it a go! Great thing is many of the items you can substitute for whatever you have change out the coconut oil for vegetable oil use honey instead of sugar use white chocolate chips! This recipe is very versatile thank you for stopping by!
