It was 1999, and I was roaming the streets of Paris, France. Literally getting lost without a care in the world. I found myself on Ave des Champs-Elysees shopping my way through town. I turned a corner or two and found a bakery lined street where everything smelled so exquisite. I ran like a bolt of lightning to the nearest bread store and flung open the door. A waft of freshly baked cakes and cookies smacked me right in the face…. I inhaled deeply. My eyes scanned the display case and I salivated as my mind raced and tried to imagine what each dessert might taste like. Then there it was sitting in all its glory, a zucchini chocolate cake. I couldn't understand it, my mouth had never explored that flavor combination but it totally made sense…Add chocolate to zucchini bread and you have a marriage of two sweets that only Parisians could dream up. I ordered a slice right away, and the rest is history. I now use this combo as a common standard in my house and have introduced it to many of my family members and friends. Enjoy!
