This week’s Saturday Evening Dessert is Zucchini Brownies.


Zucchini Brownies

1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 1/2 cups White Sugar or 3/4 cup Splenda
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
2 cups shredded Zucchini
1/2 cup chopped Walnuts
6 tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/4 cup Margarine
2 cups Confectioners’ Sugar
1/4 cup 2% Milk
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking pan.
2 – In a large bowl, mix together the oil, sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, 1/2 cup cocoa, baking soda and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Fold in the zucchini and walnuts. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
3 – Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until brownies spring back when gently touched. To make the frosting, melt together the 6 tablespoons of cocoa and margarine; set aside to cool. In a medium bowl, blend together the confectioners’ sugar, milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in the cocoa mixture. Spread over cooled brownies before cutting into squares.

The Saboscrivner

The Saboscrivner is a librarian who writes about food in Orlando, Florida, and beyond. I was inspired by Chew, a brilliant, bizarre, food-obsessed comic book series about characters with food-related super powers. Creators John Layman and Rob Guillory introduced their saboscrivner in Chew #3 with a description: "[A saboscrivner] can write about food so accurately, so vividly and with such precision – people get the actual sensation of taste when reading about the meals [he] writes about."
