Something magical happens when you cook watermelon. The water is released and it transforms into a new consistency, similar to a peach. And the flavour intensifies. You won’t believe it. Drunken Watermelon Cobbler has a hint of gin, lime and mint for a surprising fresh balance to the sweetness of the fruit.
I would love to take credit for this recipe but it’s not mine. I found it on the internet last year and made the loaf. It was so good I couldn’t believe it was packed full of zucchini! The concept of delicious and nutritious is a joke, right? But in this case, I have to say….there is some nutritional value with all that zucchini. I made another batch and used some whole wheat flour and reduced the sugar so now it’s even MORE nutritional. This version of the recipe makes 12 perfect Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins.
My parents used to tell me that during zucchini season they had to lock their cars at night or they’d find the back seat full of zucchinis. I don’t think they were joking! My dad and Mr. Foster next door always had a friendly competition about gardening. One year they both had quite the harvest and couldn’t eat them up fast enough. I’m told Mr. Foster went out after dark and left them at various neighbours’ front doors.
