Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Yes it is that time of year when you may have a plethora of Zucchini and not know what you can do with it so here are a few recipes that you can use to use up some of your Zukes! Remember you can peel and grate the zucchini and freeze it for this winter!!! The best part about these recipes is that they taste so good you would never know there are veggies in them!!!

2 sm. zucchini (about 1/2 lb. total) or 2 c. grated
4 c. flour
1/2 c. cocoa
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 1/2 c. oil
3 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Butter 2 (8 x 4) loaf pans.

Grate zucchini.

In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa, sugar, baking soda and powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

In another bowl, combine zucchini, oil, eggs, milk, and vanilla.

Stir zucchini mixture into the flour mixture, just until blended. Mix in the chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pans.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean, about 1 hour 15 minutes.

Cool on rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pans and cool completely.
