Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Jennifer Morrisey


This is one of those recipes I tried for something different, and it became more popular with my family than the original version of zucchini bread I was making. It is moist and loaded with chocolate flavor, packing two kinds of chocolate for maximum chocolate enjoyment: unsweetened cocoa powder and semi sweet chocolate chips, this bread is sure to satisfy your strongest chocolate craving.

How to Make Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread


  • 1Preheat the oven to 350°F; spray an 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray .
  • 2In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, honey, oil, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
  • 3Sift in the salt, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa, and flour, stir until well combined.
  • 4Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan.
  • 5Bake the bread for 65 to 75 minutes, until the loaf tests done (a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center will come out clean, there maybe a tiny bit of chocolate on the toothpick from the melted chips, that is ok).
  • 6Remove the bread from the oven, and let it cool for 10 to 15 minutes before turning it out of the pan onto a rack. Cool completely before slicing; store in an air tight container.
