semisweet chocolate chips
Simply amazing flavor! I love this recipe, and have successfully made the following changes: I substituted 1/2 c. of unsweetened applesauce for 1/2 c. oil; I added 3 c. of zucchini; I made muffins instead of loaves.
We thought this was an OK recipe, nothing too special. My family thought it was too sweet with too many flavors competing for attention.
I love the different levels of flavor in this. I only had 1 cup of zucchini I had frozen in a zippy bag, so chopped another cup of apple. subbed out the cinnamon with apple pie spice. Omitted nuts and used special dark chocolate chips. I love the combo of flavor with the orange and dark chocolate, as well as the spice. Replaced all the oil with applesauce. This looks very pretty when cut. *This makes a nice thick batter, so chocolate chips are evenly distributed throughtout and do not sink to the bottom which sometimes can occur in a thinner batter. A nice holiday bread with a nice change of pace from the mundane zucchini bread recipe. The cooking time in my oven was within the perimeters stated in the recipe.
This was outstanding -- my favorite zucchini bread recipe. I substituted white chocolate chips for the semisweet, doubled the orange zest (2T), used 1/2 cup applesauce & 1/2 cup oil, and baked for about 55 minutes in a bundt pan ... turned out wonderfully!! I also added an orange glaze (2T juice, 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp vanilla). I'm making it again today but will try it out with lemon zest instead (and lemon glaze), as that is what I have on hand.
I have made these 3 times now and it gets better every time! This is my favorite 'zucchini' bread. The last time I made it I used the fresh orange juice and mixed with powdered sugar to make a glace while the bread was still warm~~sooooo gooddd.........thanks for this one.
MMMMMM! FANTASTIC! The only changes I did was substitute 1/2 applesauce for 1/2 oil and doubled the orange zest. I baked the bread in 2, 8x8 glass baking dishes for 35 minutes. After it cooled I made an orange glaze to pour over the top of it. Oh man....this bread did not last long!!!
The bread came out moist and excellent in texture and flavor. Pleased with this recipe and will make it again.
This was very good. Definitely will make this one again! I left out the nuts and nutmeg. Pressed the zucchini to get some of the liquid out, and added extra orange zest. Thanks!
