Chocolate Zucchini Bread is moist and rich like the best chocolate cake you’ve ever tasted! It really does deserve to be its own food group….it’s that good!
Every year when the zucchinis are getting huge, we gather up a couple armfuls of the monsters and embark on a Chocolate Zucchini Bread bake-a-thon so we have enough loaves to freeze for the winter.
I got this wonderful recipe many years ago, from my mother-in-law.
Well, here it is and I hope it becomes one of your family favorites too!
Chocolate Zucchini Bread
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups shredded zucchini – drained
2 squares baking chocolate -melted
1 tsp salt
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Beat eggs. Add oil and brown sugar. Beat well. Add vanilla, zucchini and chocolate. Mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix until well blended.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 standard loaf pans. Bake for 45-60 minutes. Bread is done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans for a few minutes, until easily removed.
To buy the equivalent of this bread in the store (if you could find it) would cost on the average of $19.80. ($4.95 per tiny loaf). This recipe costs 4.75 for 2 standard loaves. Money Saved $15.05!
