Zucchini coming out our ears...

My roommate Julie's dad gave us a couple of HUGE zucchini and I don't like to eat them unless they are in zucchini bread so it was time to make zucchini bread. My other roomie Jill and I grated one of the zucchini, have made three batches of bread/muffins and still have half of it grated in the fridge...we haven't even touched the other two yet! Anyway, these recipes are really good so I thought I would share.

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

2 small zucchini (2 cups) grated

4 cups flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 1/2 cup oil

3 eggs

1 1/2 cups mild

2 tsp vanilla 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Bake 350 for 1 hour 15 minutes (if doing bread, a lot less time for muffins)

Makes 2 loaves or tons of mini muffins.

Zucchini Bread

3 eggs

2 cups grated zucchini (leave the skin on, thats where all the fiber and vitamins are)

2 cups sugar

1 cup butter (2 sticks) softened

2 tsp vanilla

3 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp baking powder

3 cups flour

Mmm . . . I'm hungry now! I love this blog Jamie! I know where I'm logging on when I eventually have to cook for myself again! I realized I haven't cooked much since 2004! That's the saddest thing ever! With you, it was opting for your cooking excellence over mine . . .and then living with my sister and my grandma hasn't really given me a kitchen of my own . . .and now I've lost any cooking practice I ever developed!
