Chocolaty Zucchini Loaf Cake

Directions

  1. Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 8x4x2-inch loaf pan; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, brown sugar, buttermilk, and vanilla.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, baking powder and espresso powder (if using).
  4. Add the dry ingredients all at once to the wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  5. Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chunks.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 55 to 65 minutes until a skewer inserted in the center of the bread comes out with a few moist crumbs. Remove from the oven and allow bread to cool for 15 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack to cool completely. If desired, wrap and let stand overnight before serving.
  8. To serve, spoon Ganache over loaf and serve with Coffee Whipped Cream.
