Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

A good friend of mine brought by 2 large zucchini that she had. I had been wanting to make zucchini bread for awhile but never bought any for that purpose. So when she offered some extra produce she had I was excited! This is the recipe I decided to try. It's adapted from this recipe at Allrecipes.

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup white sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chopped chocolate chips

Grease and flour two 8 x 4 inch pans. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Sift flour, salt, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Add choclate chips and toss them around in the flour mixture.

Beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar together in a large bowl. Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture, and beat well. Stir in zucchini until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.

Bake for 40 to 60 minutes, or until tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack for 20 minutes. Remove bread from pan, and completely cool.

I couldn't wait for it to cool completely to try it. So here a picture of one of the four mini loaves that I ended up digging into early. Oh my! It was delicious! The crust was so crunchy and yummy! I could have ate the tops off of each loaf! LOL But I practiced restraint. :) This recipe definitely Works for me!

Happy eating!
