There was a member of this forum a few years ago and her rampicante vines grew longer than 30 feet and tried to undermine the vinyl siding on her house. Shocked

Zucchini: Chocolate Zucchini Nut Bread

Post  Nonna.PapaVino on 8/25/2012, 6:26 pm

Funny we should be talking about what to do with our zucchini/zucchetti bounty, but Fine Cooking Magazine sent me a teaser for their take on chocolate-nut zucchini bread. You can read the article/recipe here:

http://www.finecooking.com/recipes/chocolate-nut-zucchini-bread.aspx

Sounds good to me. Nonna

For those thinking of growing these beware they are also called Rampicante for a reason. It is a very long strong vining squash and very prolific.

Lol, well that 100% seals the deal! I will for sure be growing these
tromboncino squash next year!!
Yup that's the thread about Meghan's alien squash plant.

Those folks at the Urban Homestead have so much stuff growing in their garden I bet that baby was hiding out! Impressive!

I think that's really cool. I'd be king of the house for like a whole week if I grew something that awesome Razz

Interesting recipe, the coffee was an interesting addition.

Perhaps tomorrow will be cake making day

I agree, a bit of espresso-like coffee always kicks up the flavor of chocolate, and draining the zucchini shreds is a very good idea. In the past, I've noticed zucchini breads made with zucchetta (tromboncino) shreds had a lighter texture, but never stopped to wonder why. Bake on! Nonna

LOL Rooster... got a few zucchini.??
I have just sent a few off with my son who is visiting a friend study now who else does NOT have a zucchini plant.
Interesting thread to read back through. I DID grow a tromboncini zucchini and manoman... it was hard to do. I tried to germinate a whole package and then they all died...
Then bought another package and only just now has one started to grow. There is only the one, so I am not going to pick it, just save for seeds, I sure hope to get more. ALL my other squash are producing like crazy

Thanks.  I also make zucchini fritters similar to the two recipes above except I add crumbled feta to mine.  And dill.  I'm sure there are a thousand variations, but for me the feta and the dill are what keeps me making them.

Boy these are wonderful recipes and sure make me hungry!  I have saved them all!  Thank you ALL for your input and thank you Rooster for refreshing this thread!  I sure have some work ahead of me to freeze zucchini, dry some zucchini chips, and hopefully make some zucchini pickles!  I just want to do it all and this year I have lots of zucchini!  I do think I want to try the trombocini now that I know more about it, but will have to do some planning since the vines are so huge.  I will try to post my results.
