Delicious zucchini bread with walnuts and chocolate. The zucchini gives the bread a really nice texture!


  • 3.5 oz. (100g) walnuts, chopped
  • 9 oz. (250g) zucchini, grated
  • 1 cup (200g) brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup (160ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 2 1/3 cups (300g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1.8 oz. (50g) semi-sweet chocolate, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 10×4 inches (25x11cm) loaf tin or line with baking parchment. Set aside.
  2. Chop the walnuts coarsely, wash and grate the zucchini. Set aside. Add the sugar together with the oil and vanilla extract to a large bowl and mix on high speed until well combined. Add the eggs one after another, mixing well after each addition. Mix the flour with baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add to the bowl with the wet ingredients and fold in. Add the zucchini, walnuts, and chopped chocolate and fold in. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf tin, smooth out the top and bake for 55-60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Take out of the oven and let cool down in the tin for some time, then remove carefully and let cool down completely on a wire rack.


  • Enjoy baking!
