Chocolate Zucchini Bread



Yum!

I found this recipe--The Frugal Girl and love it even though I have not tried it. I borrowed her picture, too.  It looks delicious! She has lots of pictures as she mixes the bread. The recipe originally came from  Simply Made Home . Frugal Girl changed some things from the original--pan sizes, I think. I have printed it below.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Printable Chocolate Zucchini Bread Recipe
3 eggs
1 cup oil
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups zucchini, finely shredded
2 2/3 cup flour (the original called for whole wheat, but I used white)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 350° F.
In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, oil, sugar, honey, and vanilla; whisk until smooth. Stir in the shredded zucchini.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and baking powder.
Stir zucchini mixture into the dry ingredients; mix just until combined.
Divide between four small greased loaf pans or one large greased loaf pan. Bake small loaves for 25 minutes and bake large loaf for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool loaves in pans on wire rack for 5 minutes; remove from pans to cool completely.

You can serve my Zucchini Casserole and have this Chocolate Zucchini Bread for dessert.

Your turn
Has anyone else had this? Do you have any other zucchini recipes?

  1. That looks soooooo good. I am tempted to make it next time I have zucchini. I grew them a few years ago and had so many I was eating them every day.
    I was worried when there were no posts from you for a few days. I hope your health is improving.

  2. I am going to the market for zucchini tomorrow. It will be Friday before I can make it. I have not felt well and have another appointment with the urologist in two weeks. We will see. In the meantime, I am taking antibiotics until then.
