Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Let’s call this “bread” what it really is.  It’s a cake… a chocolatey cake that I’ve shaped into a loaf and thrown some zucchini into just so I feel a little bit better about eating it at all hours of the day.  Sometimes chocolate is what we crave.  Don’t resist it.  Give in.  Make one for yourself and give the other to a friend or tuck it in the freezer for the next time you’re hit with a craving.  And don’t feel guilty when you slice into it for a quick breakfast… or a mid-morning snack… or right before bed.  We all deserve a little chocolate every now and then.

    I’m going to have to try this – double chocolate! I made zucchini bread for my kids but they just couldn’t get over the green in the sweet bread – now, if I hid the zucchini in this beautiful double chocolate loaf, I can’t imagine they’d complain ;)ReplyCancel

  • DeniseApril 8, 2013 - 10:54 am

    Had me at chocolate, then you added zucchini. I adore zucchini bread and make it all summer long. Cannot wait to toss some double chocolate into the mix this year!ReplyCancel

    This is gorgeous. Stowing away for zucchini-overload season, but let’s be honest–I’m probably going to bake it before then too.ReplyCancel

  • Georgia @ The Comfort of CookingApril 8, 2013 - 1:00 pm

    While I have eaten many a zucchini chocolate bread I have to admit I have never made one myself. I think I will change that and give this a go.ReplyCancel

  • Rachel @ Baked by RachelApril 8, 2013 - 2:17 pm

  • M.C.@ ThousandStoryKitchenApril 8, 2013 - 9:10 pm

    Gah. I always make the mistake of reading blogs while hungry. This one should have a giant warning on it- DON’T READ WHILE HUNGRY! – because now I’m just sad that this is not in my bread box awaiting my consumption before bed tonight…or really, I’m just sad it isn’t in my belly, truth be told. It soon will be, though. I’m going to take this to a brunch this week!ReplyCancel

    I tried to serve my brother a chocolate zucchini cake once and he is still angry at me to this day! He hates zucchini…but I think he could possibly be won over with this cake. It just looks so rich and delicious!ReplyCancel

    This bread was amazing! Thanks so much for the recipe ;).ReplyCancel

  • AnnaAugust 4, 2013 - 1:19 pm

    Great recipe – I made a batch last night. I added walnuts and to lighten it up a bit, subbed the cup of oil for 1/2 cup oil + 1/4 cup + 2 TBS 2% greek yogurt. The walnuts definitely worked, and the yogurt sub was ok, but I’m certain it would have been a much better loaf with your original ingredients. Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

  • Felicia BarrowAugust 27, 2013 - 10:32 pm

    Looks yummy. I can’t bake so I would definitely have to use a Cuffitt when baking like this so I won’t get burnt!ReplyCancel
