My neighbor made this the other day and shared a few pieces with me..I love this..It is more like a cake, than a bread. It is very rich..
It is almost the same as my old recipe that I have except I did not use the chocolate..I have missed out on a lot, in my life.
This recipe was handed down from a friend of hers and she gave me a copy..
The secrete is the 3 cups of grated zucchini for a more moist bread? I say cake!
The original recipe came from the Victorian Bed & Breakfast in Coupeville, Washington.
