(Chocolate) Zucchini Bread

So I've been making this zucchini bread recipe for YEARS (I believe my catering aunt gave it to me) and at the bottom of the recipe card is a note saying "To make Chocolate Zucchini bread---add ½ cup cocoa!" but I never did-----until today when I decided that this was the recipe that I was going to make for the Master Baker's 1st challenge!!! OMG what a different taste---in a good way! It still has the traditional taste of the zucchini bread that its infamous for---cinnamon & nutmeg but with a non-overpowering hint of chocolate. Ooh and still moist...yum!! I got so excited about adding the chocolate I forgot to add nuts this round!!!! Oh well, still good and will still be gone!!! And if you couldn't tell, if you want to make it the 'regular' way just leave out the cocoa!!

Zucchini Bread
3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 cup zucchini, shredded
2½ cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon & nutmeg
½ tsp baking powder

Beat eggs, oil, sugar & vanilla. Stir in zucchini. Combine dry ingredients; add to zucchini mixture and mix well. Pour into 2 greased 8x4x2 loaf pans. Bake at 350F degrees for 1 hour.

I have a similar recipe where you add cocoa to half the batter, and end up with half and half. It's my favorite!! I need to try yours that is all chocolate - yum!
