Number three of the three has to be dessert right? It comes at the end of the meal. This is just a little twist on the zucchini bread that most of us know and love. It adds chocolate and what couldn't be improved by chocolate. At least that's what a lot of people think.
My daughter agrees.

Lori's Lipsmacking Goodness

3 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups grated zucchini
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/3 cup allpurpose flour

Combine vegetable oil, vanilla, eggs, zucchini and sugar in a large bowl. In a medium sized bowl combine dry ingredients, cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder and flour. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingedients. Pour into two greased loaf pans. Bake at 350F for about 45 minutes. (I use cooking spray, works fine).

I am so glad I stumbled on by! Chocolate zucchini bread has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl (I was never that cute, though).

Oh she's adorable!!

Lori said...

Thank you to all. I am rather biased but I think shes a cutie too! She would love to hear all of you tell her this as well. She would just eat it all up!

Oh how cute. Should you send that baby picture to Zucchini council as a perfect advertisement. My mother in law makes chocolate zucchini bread but this looks even better.

Your daughter is so cute :)

Grace said...

you sure are treating your zucchini nicely, shrouding it in chocolate and everything. what did it do to deserve that? :)
