Chocolate Zucchini Bread


This combination is so surprisingly wonderful together because you basically have a spice cake that is made moist by the zucchini and sweet by the chocolate, that’s a win-win!

You’ll Need

  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1 1/3 sticks unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • Preheat oven to 350 F and butter two 9″ x 5″ loaf pans.
  • Place the chocolate in a microwaveable bowl and microwave on low in 30 second increments, until the chocolate has melted and is completely smooth.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla. Mix in the zucchini. With a spatula, add the melted chocolate and stir until thoroughly combined. 
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and chocolate chips. Fold the flour mixture until it forms a smooth batter. 
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a loaf comes out clean.
  • Turn the loaves out onto a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes.
