I still have one very large zucchini from my garden that I need to do something with. Below is a great zucchini bread recipe that was passed on to me and I have to pass on to you. It has chocolate - nuff said. Actually, it is soooo good! I have a dark chocolate fan at home (doesn't like sweet things much) who absolutely loved this bread. You can also download it from allrecipes.com.
I also got the tip that you can grate your zucchini and freeze it. I'll do that with the leftover zucchini after I make two batches of this bread. Freeze in 2 cup batches (most recipes want 2 cups).
Chocolate Zucchini Bread
What you need:
2 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
2 C white sugar
1 C vegetable oil
2 C grated zucchini
1 tsp vanilla
2 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 C semisweet chocolate chips
What to do:
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Lightly grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate squares until melted. Stir occasionally until chocolate is smooth.
2. In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, oil, zucchini, vanilla and chocolate; beat well. Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a loaf comes out clean.
