Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

(Adapted from Morning Coffee & Afternoon Tea)

3 eggs
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups grated zucchini
4 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup chopped walnuts

Gently melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave. 

While the chocolate is melting, beat eggs in a large bowl until fluffy.  Add sugar, oil and yogurt and mix well.  Stir in grated zucchini, melted chocolate and vanilla.  Just ignore the fact that it looks like mud and grass.  :)

Sift dry ingredients together and then stir into the other mixture.  Add chopped nuts if desired. 

Pour into 2 greased bread pans (9 x 5 x 2 inches) and bake at 350 for 60 - 70 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.  The top will split and pull away from the sides of the pan a bit. 

Allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans.
