Chocolate Zucchini Bread

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 C brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 C vegetable oil
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 2 oz melted unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 C shredded zucchini
  • 2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 3/4 – 1 C chocolate chips
  • 1 C slivered almonds (optional)

Beat eggs (at medium speed of an electric mixer or by hand) in a large mixing bowl until thick and lemon-colored. Add sugar, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla, beating well. Stir in melted chocolate and zucchini.

In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add flour mixture to zucchini mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in chocolate chips and almonds.

Spoon batter into two well-greased 9x5x3″ loaf pans. Bake at 350F for 45-60 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pans for 10 minutes, then remove from pans and let cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

23-03-2013: Making this recipe is how I discovered that Slinky likes zucchini.

12-09-2015: We made these into muffins today, with some alternations. 2 C zucchini was roughly two small zucchinis. We halved the amount of sugar, and omitted the baker’s chocolate and chocolate chips, and instead shook in some amount of cocoa powder. The result was 28 muffins, which baked at 180C for 25 min.
