I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Chocolate and Green Tomato Bread

Did you know that you can use shredded green tomatoes in baked goods just as you would zucchini? And it has more vitamin C.

3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp instant coffee granules
3/4 cup chocolate chips

2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

1  1/2 cups shredded green tomato

Start by shredding the green tomatoes and leave them in a colander for 30 minutes. Mix the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl up to and including the chocolate chips.

In a larger bowl mix the eggs, oil, sugars and vanilla together then fold in the green tomato.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir just until combined. Pour into  prepared 9 X 5" loaf pan.

Bake at 350 F for 55-60 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.

And any extra shredded green tomato can be frozen and used later.

A bagged enough for more Chocolate and Green Tomato Bread!
