This results in your food being evenly baked, thanks to more consistent temperature.

Experienced bakers know that shredded zucchini is a crucial ingredient for sweet bread products. While it may not taste like much uncooked on its own, simply combining it with chocolate can really make it stand out. Here’s how you can make it happen.


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease two 9×5 inch loaf pans.
