Tantalizing Thursday~Chocolate Zucchini Bread!

Here I am again, sharing another delicious recipe using my garden zucchini.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

My boys were very surprised to find out that this is made with zucchini.  As I told them, there have been a lot of things you ate when you were younger and never knew, because I never explained what went into the recipe.  This is a lesson to always try things, than decide if you like it or not.

Ingredients for Chocolate Zucchini Bread


I found this wonderful recipe from the Joy of Baking.  I have always tried zucchini bread, but this was my first time making a chocolate one.  I have to tell you this recipe was very tasty and chocolaty.

  1. You are missing the 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder on your list of ingredients. You do mention mixing in baking powder in step 1, but do not have the amount. Luckily I was able to track down the amount needed because you mentioned where you got the original recipe. My 3 girls LOVE this, so thank you for posting it!

    • Cori, Thanks so much for letting me know! I will go fix it now! I appreciate that you took the time to come back and tell me so I can fix it for others! I am so glad your girls loved it too!

  2. Ooooh, this sounds so yummy!! thanks for sharing DeDe! I don’t grow Zuchini, but I know a lot of people in my neighborhood that do so maybe I’ll see if they have any left! 🙂
