Description

This zucchini bread is moist, rich, and packed full of chocolate. What more could you ask for?

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Shredded, Drained Zucchini
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1-½ cup Flour
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ⅓ cups Cocoa Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons Additional Salt
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ½ cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the zucchini with salt; set aside.

Sift together dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs; mix in vegetable oil and vanilla extract.

Mix wet ingredients into dry; fold in zucchini.

Lightly flour chocolate chips and fold into batter.

Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake for about an hour or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

This was WONDERFUL!!! I did the recipe as stated and it was GREAT!

If brownies were a bread this is what it would taste like.

FYI I kept in the fridge and it was supper yummy like that too.

I made this bread last night and it was great. If recipe appears dry all you have to do is let the zucchini sit with the rest of the ingredients for a while. They emit enough moisture in a few minutes to make it easier to mix. I though this bread was great. And so did my family!

YUMMY!
I took brandyu’s advice and cooked mine for 45 minutes – perfect!
Bread is moist and delicious. I thought the batter was a little dry (my dry ingredients wouldn’t mix in), so I added an extra egg and a couple more tablespoons of oil. Probably my fault, I only had medium eggs on hand! I also cut back on the chocolate chips.
I will definitely make this again, maybe next time I’ll make them into muffins! YUM!

I made this tonight and it is DELICIOUS! The only thing that I did differently was I used mini-chips because it’s all I had. I would also suggest checking the bread at 45 minutes; I took mine out at 55 minutes but wished I would have pulled it a few minutes sooner.

Very good; moist and chocolatey. My zucchini was more than a cup but since it was my first time trying the recipe I stuck to just a cup. Next time I’ll throw in however much I have. I also might bake it at 325 instead of 350 because by the time the inside was cooked the edges were burnt. Could just be my crappy oven!

I made this a couple of nights ago and it is awesome!! I took it to work and it got rave reviews. One lady compared it to cake…so, yes, it is sweet and dessert-like. Or if you’re me…breakfast like! :)
