Your Zucchini Bread Ingredients
- 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate (use 1-oz squares)
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 1-cup canola oil
- 2 cups zucchini, grated
- 1-teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2-cups all-purpose flour
- 1-teaspoon baking soda
- 1-teaspoon salt
- 1-teaspoon cinnamon, ground
- 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
How to Make Chocolate Zucchini Bread
Melt the chocolate squares in the microwave in a small microwave-safe bowl. Be careful not to burn it or else you will have to start over.
Stir gently with a spoon to make sure the chocolate is completely melted.
In your mixing bowl, combine together the following: eggs, sugar, canola oil, zucchini, pure vanilla, and the melted chocolate. Mix the ingredients on a low setting until they're well blended.
Next, add the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Make sure the dry ingredients blend well. Lastly, add the chocolate chips.
Pour equal amounts of the bread batter into each prepared pan.
Bake for one hour and check to see if it's baked all the way through. Insert a butter knife into the middle of the bread - if it comes out clean, the bread is done. If not, put it back into the oven and bake for another 10 minutes or so.
Allow the bread to cool for about a 1/2 hour and then slice and serve. We found that half of a thick slice was just enough with ice cream for dessert.
Variations On A Bead !
I've yet to try it, but I am going to try substituting Turbinado cane sugar for the white refined sugar to see how it tastes.
The other variation I thought might taste really good is substituting butterscotch chips for the chocolate chips. Once I try these variations, I'll post the results!
