Zucchini is quite a versatile vegetable we truly love. But this combination really left us speechless. We never thought this could be used to make such fluffy brownies or sturdy rustic bread. We were pleasantly surprised you can’t even identitfy you’ve used zucchini at all in this recipe. We actually considered making this into two seperate recipes but opted to mix them together and were pleasantly surprised with the combination. Of course if you prefer just brownies or bread you can just dubble one of the batters and make that instead. But we feel like this truly is an option you should try. Happy weekend everybody!
150g grated zucchini (finely as possible)
1 egg white
45g oatmeal flour
25ml sunflower oil
1 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking powder
200g grated zucchini (with moisture squeezed out)
20g oatmeal flakes
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
Grab two bowls so we can make one batter in each. In the first bowl you can mix the grated zucchini with the egg white, oil and honey. When mixed you can add the rest of the ingredients until you have a smooth batter.
In another bowl, you can mix the zucchini with the egg and then add the dry ingredients until you have a firm batter.
Let it rest while you preheat the oven to 175 ℃.
Place a baking sheet in a small cake tin. Start with a small layer of the bread batter and press down with a fork. Then put a layer of brownie batter on top. Now you can gently add a layer of bread batter and then the brownie batter again. Continue until you have no more batter, but make sure you end with the brownie batter. If you have done this bake it for 50 to 60 minutes in the oven at 175 ℃ (depending on the oven). Check with a toothpick if the cake is firm and moist. It doesn’t have to be completely dry.
Let in the cake rest for 10 minutes in the tin before slicing. Use a bread knife using not too much pressure to cut it into slices. Due to the layers they quickly fall apart with a different type of blade. Serve with maple syrup mixed with some butter. Bon appetit!
