They say a loaf is the way to a man’s heart… wait no one has ever said that.. well let it be known.

Yes my partner LOVES this loaf, and no no he still doesn’t know that it contains zucchini. Sneaky Sneaky I know. But if I can get it past him, trust me you will get it past your kids!

This Zucchini Chocolate Loaf is super moist and fudgey only needs one bowl! What more could you ask for!
