Zucchini Brownie Recipe

By now,  zucchini plants should be in full production and gardeners everywhere are wondering what to do with all of their zucchini. After all, there is only so much bread a person can make!  One of the great things about zucchini is that it takes on the taste of anything you wish to put it with.  So chop it, shred it, slice it and add it to your spaghetti sauces,  your soups, your casseroles, your pizzas, and even your brownies.   Brownies???

Here is a great zucchini brownie recipe that came from The DeKalb County (Missouri) Sesquicentennial Cookbook that my mom gave me back in 1994.  Enjoy!


2 cups zucchini, shredded                                                    1 1/2 tsp baking soda

2 cups flour                                                                             1/2 cup cocoa

1 1/2 sugar                                                                               1/2 oil

2 tsp vanilla                                                                             1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt                                                                                   1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Sift all dry ingredients into a small bowl.  Combine zucchini, vanilla, and oil.  Gradually stir into dry ingredients. Add nuts. Lightly spray 10 x 15 jelly roll pan with cooking spray.  Pour batter into pan.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
