Chocolate Spice Zucchini Bread (Think Starbucks Chocolate Cinnamon bread, only a little better for you)
This was awesome! Another variation of bread when the zucchini are in season. This recipe makes one loaf.
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1 cup of grated zucchini (unpeeled)
1 1/2 cups of flour
1/4 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips
cinnamon sugar to dust liberally on top of loaf.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients in order. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar liberally on the top BEFORE baking. Bake for 1 hour, or till set inside. Cool about 20 minutes before removing from the pan.
