Ingredients for Chocolate Zucchini Bread.

Ingredients:

Unsweetened Baking Chocolate Bar- Using unsweetened chocolate allows you to add an intense chocolate flavor without adding too much sweetness. One or two squares will do it!

Grated Zucchini- Everyone knows zucchini bread has the best flavors when you add in shredded zucchini. It makes each bite moist and flavorful without tasting like vegetables!

All-Purpose Flour- All purpose flour is what is used in most baked goods and is in almost every pantry.

Cocoa Powder- Cocoa powder can be a less intense chocolate in terms of taste, but it is usually paired with an unsweetened chocolate that gives bread a rich flavor .

Salt- Salt brings out the flavors in baked goods and doesn’t add any extra saltiness.

Baking Soda- Baking soda is another leavening agent that helps the bread to rise and gives it a softer texture.

Baking Powder- Baking powder is an acidic ingredient that reacts with the alkaline of the baking soda when heated, which causes baked goods to rise.

Cinnamon- Cinnamon is a versatile fall spice that gives the bread a nice kick and it brings out other flavors in the chocolate.

Eggs- Eggs add richness to your baked goods while also binding them together.

Vegetable Oil- Vegetable oil is typically used because of its neutral flavor.

Vanilla Extract- Vanilla extract is another standard baking ingredient that helps to bring out the flavor of chocolate.

Chocolate Chips- Chocolate chips add a simple sweetness and richness to the bread that everyone loves.
