Amazing Chocolate Zucchini Bread


"This is a family recipe that I make all year long! A family favorite! This recipe is AMAZING! I make several loaves and freeze it. It's just as good after it thaws out as it is the day it's baked. I also shred zucchini from my garden and put it in 2-cup portions in the freezer for fresh bread all year round."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat margarine, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg together with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the mixture before adding the next. Beat vanilla extract into the margarine mixture with the last egg.
  3. Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Pour the flour mixture into the margarine mixture alternately with the milk, mixing until just incorporated. Fold zucchini through the batter, mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour batter into 2 loaf pans.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

best bread ever!!!!!!

Excellent quick bread! Nice and chocolatey, and moist.

I made a few healthy additions and a tasty addition! I added 2 Tb ground flax seed. It was not noticeable at all, I may add 4 Tb next time. I also replaced some white flour with Buckwheat....

Good recipe. Made it gluten free by substituting gluten free flour blend for flour called for in recipe and 1 tsp of xanthan gum. I also had a package of chocolate chips on hand and put half the...

Love it!! Used about 3 1/2 cups zucchini and it made it super moist. Not as sweet as the recipe I usually make but it's just as good and I didn't need chocolate chips.

This is AMAZING! Love that the recipe makes two loaves. One did not last any time at all in our house. I took the second to some new neighbors who just moved in and they raved about it also. ...

Absolutely, Amazing!!! I chose to add a cup of chocolate chips to the mixture! Not necessary, but pretty darn awesome

It would help if the recipe were more specific as to the size of the loaf pans (4x8, or 5x9). I have only 5x9, and all that mix filled each one to only about 1.5" depth. So I combined all the ...
