Chocolate Zucchini Loaf

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup oil (Canola is good)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tbsp cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp powdered cloves
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (amount can vary)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the margarine, oil and sugar. Still beating, incorporate the eggs, vanilla, milk and all the dry ingredients.

  3. When all the above is mixed well, stir in the grated zucchini and about a cup of chocolate chips, reserving some of the chocolate chips for topping.

  4. Pour into a greased and floured pan – a 9"x13" rectangular pan to a loaf pan, so the end result can be cut in squares instead of slices.

  5. Sprinkle reserved chocolate chips over the top of the batter, and bake for about 40 minutes, or until the edges start to burn a little and a knife comes out clean from the center.
