Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Noted:  Looking back on my early posts in 2006 - back when I had to take the pictures on a camera and literally plug into my computer with a cord to upload them.  Also - it was rare for anyone to even have recipe blogs back then so the photos and the posts are almost 'vintage' by now.



Chocolate Zucchini Bread 

 1 3/4 c sugar 

3 eggs 

1 c vegetable oil 

2 c shredded zucchini 

1 T vanilla 

3 c flour 

1/2 c cocoa 

1 1/4 t salt 

1 t baking soda 

1 t cinnamon 

dash baking powder 

1/2 c mini chocolate chips 

Preheat oven to 350. 

Lightly grease 2 loaf pans and line with parchment paper on the bottom (optional). In a bowl mix together the sugar, eggs and oil until blended. Stir in zucchini and vanilla. In another bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, salt, soda, cinnamon and baking powder. 

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir just until blended. Add the mini chocolate chips. Pour into pan and bake 1 hour until done. Cool completely before cutting. 

Best for cutting the next day after wrapping in plastic wrap and refrigerating. If you don't currently have zucchini... don't buy it. I can almost guarantee you can get free zucchini just by putting out the word! Either your neighborhood or workplace... someone within "2 degrees of separation" from you has zucchini coming out of their ears from their garden and would love to share a couple with you for free! Just put the word out.
