Here Comes The Zucchini

As everyone's gardens start flourishing with Zucchini it is always a challange to figure out what to do with them. I like to chop and coat with olive oil and freeze some so I can use them in the winter for soups stews and bread. Freezing is very fast and easy for me and my schedule. When I have a little time I make zuccini bread and freeze them too. We love fresh bread at my house especially zucchini bread so below is a sweet chocolate zucchini bread that I was inspired by at our potluck the other night.

2 cups sugar
1 cup canola oil
3 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups shredded peeled zucchini

In a large bowl, beat the sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and baking powder; gradually beat into sugar mixture until blended. Stir in zucchini. Transfer to two 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).
