Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I don’t have any good stories to share that relate to chocolate zucchini bread. So we’ll just get on to this delicious recipe. Yum!

I got this yummy recipe from Nate’s aunt from her mom. She makes it as a cake, but I think bread is cuter. The only thing I added extra to the recipe is the vanilla and more chocolate chips.

1 3/4 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1/2 cup butter milk**
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 tsp salt
t tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
5 TBS cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups milk chocolate chips

**Make your own by adding 1/2 TBS vinegar to the 1/2 cup of milk. And allowing to sit for 10 minutes.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Pour all ingredients into a large bowl and mix well.
3. Prepare 2 bread loaf pans by lining them with parchment paper and spraying the paper with nonstick spray.
4. Pour batter equally into the 2 loaf pans.
5. Bake in oven for 50 to 60 minutes.
6. Allow to cool in pan for a bit before removing.

  1. Did you mean 1/2 a TBS of vinegar?

    1. Sarah, thanks for noticing that for me. Yes I did mean 1/2 TBS. I fixed the recipe as well, but thanks for pointing it out.

  3. Can you taste the zucchini? Or is that added to make this “better for you”?

    1. I’m not really sure if you can taste the zucchini. It doesn’t taste exactly like a normal chocolate bread or cake would, but of course it doesn’t taste just like zucchini either. I think its mostly to make it this healthier, but I think it also helps keep it really moist as well.
