Winning Zucchini Bread


    1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
    1 1/2 cups cake flour (or all-purpose)
    1 Tablespoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon allspice
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    2 eggs, room temperature
    1/3 cup canola oil (or peanut)
    3/4 cup Greek yogurt (I used 2%, but full fat would be ideal)
    1/3 cup buttermilk (or regular milk with a splash of vinegar)
    1 cup sugar
    2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    2 1/2 cups finely grated zucchini
    2/3 cup dark chocolate chips (for those of you who like chocolate)
    OR 2/3 cup nuts (pecans or walnuts)
    OR you could do 1/3 cup chocolate chips, 1/3 cup nuts

Preheat oven to 350°F. Oil a 9×4 inch loaf pan and line with parchment paper. Line a 6-cup muffin tin with papers OR oil a mini loaf pan. In a bowl, sift together dry ingredients and set aside.

    In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy; beat in yogurt, buttermilk, oil, sugar, and vanilla. Combine well. Stir in grated zucchini and chopped chocolate.
    Fold flour mixture into the wet ingredients and stir until combined.
    Spoon batter into 6 muffin cups (or mini loaf pan) and pour the rest into the 9×4 loaf pan. Bake for approximately 50 minutes.
    Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes in the pan. Loosen the sides and remove from pan. Cool loaf completely before cutting.
