Chocolate Zucchini Bread

A friend brought me a pretty yellow, large zucchini from her garden. What to do .. what to do ... I know! Make zucchini bread and add some chocolate! Makes two sinfully delicious loaves.


3 eggs
1 c. vegetable oil
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. granulated sugar
1 T. vanilla extract
2 c. zucchini, grated
2-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. cocoa
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

Pre-heat oven to 350-degrees.

In a  large bowl, beat the eggs, oil, sugar and vanilla. Stir in the grated zucchini. In another bowl combine the dry ingredients, whisk. Add dry ingredients to the zucchini mixture and mix well with a spoon. It is a fairly thick batter.

Pour into two greased loaf pans and bake for 45 to 55 minutes.
