You may have heard me talk about my recipe search for “the one.” What’s the one? It’s the recipe. The one that trumps all the others you’ve tried for that particular thing and ends your search to find the best. It’s the one that you make over and over again until the page in the recipe book gets ingrained in your head. I have a huge list of things I’m still on a quest for and others that have happily settled in their spots as “the one” in my book. That’s not to say that everything that is perfection to me is going to be perfection to anyone else, so I’ll never say something is the best, but it might be the best for me.

When it comes to quick breads (which I love) I’ve found lots that qualify as the one. I have a perfect banana bread, a perfect poppyseed bread, a perfect pumpkin bread, and a few others. I have lots of good zucchini bread recipes, including chocolate ones, but had yet to find the *one*. So I made this one. And it’s now the one. I hesitate to say that because I’m sure some people out there will bake it and say, “meh. It’s okay.” lol. So I just want to stress that it’s “the” one for ME! I think the reason I love it so much is that it’s so light and moist and chocolaty that it’s pretty much cake in a loaf pan. But calling it bread and putting a vegetable in it makes it sound hip and healthy and appropriate for things other than dessert. But just so you know, you could totally eat this for dessert. With ice cream :) Go eat your veggies kids!

 


I LOVE the top on this stuff, and those cute little specks of green!

And the best part is that you just made 2 loaves of bread so you can give one away (or not, I won’t judge). A great way to package breads like this is just to wrap a piece of parchment around the middle and tie with a ribbon. So much cuter than shrink-wrapping the stuff in plastic, don’t you think?


Hopefully some of you still have zucchini coming out of your ears so you can give this a shot. And if you didn’t grow your own zucchini, this is totally worth buying some for!

It makes fantastic muffins as well. I used papers in the muffin tin and cooked them at the same temp. Set your timer for 10-12 minutes and then keep an eye on them (cuz I can’t remember exactly how long they took!) I made 12 large muffins, 12 mini muffins, and one small loaf- so you definitely get a bunch!

    This is a wonderful recipe! I love the chocolate and the chocolate chips!

    I posted a zucchini bread recipe yesterday with Nutella swirled on top. It turned out really nice.

    I still have a ton of zucchini! I'll have to try your recipe next!

    NikiTheo says:

    I've never made zucchini bread, mainly b/c until last year sometime, I never really liked zucchini. Then I was forced to do something with it in one of my classes at culinary school and wow. It is now one of my favs.
    This bread would be a great addition to my collection of zucchini filled recipes. Thanks for sharing!

    Aubri says:

    This bread looks beautiful and so good! What size loaf pans did you use…8 inch? Just want to make sure I bake it for the right amount of time in the right sized pan!

  6. 6
    Sara @ Our Best Bites says:

    Aubri that's a good question. I need to add that info in my post! I actually used 2 different sized pans. This recipe should give you 2 very full 8" pans (like the disposable type pictured). I used one 8" to give away, and one 9". The batter actually split perfectly that way. The 8" pan was done in about 55 minutes and the larger pan took just a few minutes longer. So I'd still keep an eye on it after about 45 minutes. This would also make fantastic cupcakes or muffins!

    Well thank you for doing all the research and then creating "the one"!! We love zucchini bread (haven't made any yet this summer) but have never tried CHOCOLATE zucchini bread… Yum! Can't wait to give this one a try and thanks for the tip – I hate that little rim on quick breads.
    Oh, and I love your loaf-to-give-away… how cute!

    Sara @ Our Best Bites says:

    ooh, Jana- orange! Why didn't I think of that? I love chocolate and orange and orange and cinnamon so I'm pretty sure that would be a match made in heaven. I'm not a fan of orange extract, but I'd definitely throw in some zest. I'm going to try it next time I make it- thanks for the idea!

    Barbara Bakes says:

    The One is a lot to live up to. It does look perfect. I think I'll go bake this right now! Love the tips on chopping up regular chips and also removing the grease on the top of the pan!

    Gotta love a bread recipe that makes two loaves. I made banana bread the other night and my two-year-old and I ate the entire loaf in a 12 hour period.

    formerchef says:

    This looks wonderful! What I like is that there's not a ton of oil in the recipe, like some I've seen for banana bread for example.
    If I had sour cream in the house, I'd be making this right now! I still have a lot of zucchini from my garden…hmmm…maybe tomorrow…

    katskitchen says:

    My mom gave me some giagantic zucchini's awhile back which I shredded and froze (after digging out the seeds). I have a fav. zucchini bread recipe BUT it doesn't contain chocolate, so when I'm in the mood for that, I'll be giving this one a whirl!

  31. 31
    Anne says:

    LOVE this, made it today and it was wonderful. I don't think the second loaf will make it to a friend.
    Do you have a favorite zucchini bread recipe without chocolate? Love the chocolate but would love to have a great one without too. Thanks!

    Oh my goodness that looks WONDERFUL!! My family has been on a zucchini bread kick, but this will just put it over the top! Wait maybe I shouldn't make it?? NOT!! Can't wait! Love your blog, just found it from a friend's blog. Everything looks YUMMY!!

    Beth says:

    This bread was fantastic. I woke up yesterday thinking that I needed to make something with the zucchini from the garden. What a great surprise to find this posted. I made 4 loaves…gave one away and my kids ate 2 already. I was wondering if it would be as good without the chocolate. Believe it or not, we have some non chocolate lovers here. Thanks for the great eats!

  36. 36
    Sara @ Our Best Bites says:

    Ya know Beth, I was just thinking about trying it again sans chocolate. I was going to switch the sugar ratio (to add more brown instead of white) include Orange zest and a couple of other things to boost flavor. I bet it would work great! If you try it out before I do, let me know :) Glad you liked it as much as I do!

    Andrea says:

    I had planned on making zucchini bread with my 3-year-old yesterday, so I was so excited when I saw this recipe. It did not disapoint. We loved it! Though I do have a question: How do you remove the loaf from the pan in one piece? My first loaf came out in 4 large pieces and several smaller ones, so we just cut the second loaf in the pan.

  39. 39
    nancyb says:

    We loved your chocolate zuchini bread. My husband took a loaf camping with him today and I am sure he won't take the time to slice it! The top turned out amazing.

  40. 40
    Sara @ Our Best Bites says:

    Andrea- You'll want to make sure to both butter and flour the pan (as opposed to just spraying with Pam or something) and when it comes out of the oven, let it cool on a rack for about 10 minutes before you try to remove it. Then run a knife around the edge and when you invert the pan give it a few good pats on the bottom of the pan. Mine popped right out- hope that all helps!

    Emily says:

    Mmmm that looks so good! Your zucchini looks so cute! I will definitely be making this with the next zucchini we pick from our garden. Yea! :)

    Amanda says:

    I added this to my Friday Recipes post which featured zucchini, thanks! You can see it here ;) http://oldtips.blogspot.com/2009/08/friday-recipes-zucchini.html

    AND because of all the positive comments here, I just removed one of these from the oven. I halved the recipe. It smells fab, a bit flat though, not sure why. If it tastes as good as everyone says, then I will try it again with the full recipe. :) I only had enough zucchini left for one loaf! ;)

    Megan says:

    I made this yesterday. It was hands down the best chocolate zucchini bread I've ever made (and I've tried many recipes). Thanks!

    Sara @ Our Best Bites says:

    Megan and everyone else- thanks so much for the nice comments! Right after I posted this I regretted talking it up so much because I got all scared that I might be the only one who would like it! lol. It makes my day to hear that y'all love it as much as I do! Thanks so much for coming back to tell me so:)

    The Marsden 4 says:

    Looks heavenly, can't wait to try it! A couple questions, do you have to use canola oil or will veggie oil do? AND did you bake both loafs at the same time?

  49. 49
    Sara @ Our Best Bites says:

    Marsden 4- Yes, cook both loaves together. I put them both on a cookie sheet for easy transport. And yes, vegetable oil should work just fine. Canola is just a little more healthy since vegetable oil can be a different blend of several different oils.

  50. 50
    Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction says:

    Just thought I'd check back and let you know that I made the chocolate zucchini bread and it was wonderful! I made one loaf and a dozen muffins… SO tasty!

  51. 51
    Emily says:

    So I finally made this today and it is delicious (of course, I wasn't surprised :) Anyway, I have a question. I know that a lot of sweet bread recipes call for 1 cup of oil. I noticed that this had 1/2 c oil and 1/2 c sour cream instead. Is that a substitution you can use with all sweet breads?

  52. 52
    danazia says:

    We seemed to think the same! One of my last posts was on double dark Chocolate zucchini bread. It is a lower fat version. Come check it out! http://danazia.wordpress.com/

  53. 53
    Sara @ Our Best Bites says:

    Emily- yes! I almost always use half oil and sub out the other half for sour cream. Yogurt works great too- plain, vanilla, heck I use all kinds of fruit flavors when I make banana bread. It's a great little trick to cut calories and add moisture.

  54. 54
    Emily says:

    Cool, that's awesome! I tried using applesauce the last time I made regular zucchini bread and it turned out kinda spongy-not that great. So I'm glad to have a MUCH better alternative. Thanks!

    Kenzie says:

    Hi! I love your website I love every new recipe it's like christmas! I was just wondering what you put around the loaf you gave away under the ribbon? It looks soo cute! Thanks!

  56. 56
    Sara @ Our Best Bites says:

    Thanks Kenzie! I just used a piece of parchment paper. You can find it by the foil and waxed paper and stuff at the grocery store. It comes in both white and brown and works great for stuff like that.

    (K, and I realize you probably already know what parchment paper is and where to find it, but I just thought I'd throw that in just in case anyone else is wondering!)

  57. 57
    Amber says:

    Oh, my YUM. I've been looking for a 'good' zucchini bread recipe for years. Usually it's too 'baking soda-y' for me. This was heaven. Although I don't think I can even start to pretend that it's good for me even if it does have zucchini in it.

    Thanks!

  58. 58
    Kathe says:

    This is indeed THE one! I made the two loaves, fully intending to give them both away—-not so quickly! We devoured a loaf ourselves, and I'm making more today! The orange zest really MAKES it. Thanks!

    Sweet and Savory says:

    It is hard to believe that is zucchini. It looks like the richest chocolate cake.

    Marcie says:

    THIS WAS INCREDIBLE! Wow. I substituted WW flour and left out 1/4 C. of white sugar (I have this weird thing about not going over 1 cup of sugar in a recipe ;) and it turned out fabulous! I also made it into muffins to make it easier to grab and go and it made a TON of muffins. I honestly don't think I'll make brownies again because this chocolatey treat is so much better!

  62. 62
    everything pink! says:

    oh once again you are making me look great. i made this tonight along with the minestrone soup and I am a super star.

    i do have a question. is there a difference in baking in a glass pan or a metal pan? temp or time?

    also does it make a difference in cooking to add the dry ingredients separately then the wet, does the order of a recipe really make a difference? (I am a cooking rookie, so I know this may be a silly question)

    thanks girls!

  63. 63
    Sara @ Our Best Bites says:

    everythingpinnnk- all good questions!

    The general recommendation seems to be to reduce the temperature by 25 degrees when using a glass pan, but many recipes will tell you to do the same thing when using a dark or coated non-stick metal pan. For general cooking I personally don't think it makes a huge difference, I usually don't adjust my temps and everything always turns out fine. But if you ever have problems with delicate things like cakes getting overcooked on the bottom in a glass pan, you may want to reduce the temp.

    About the ingredient order, yes you'll want to follow the directions as stated in a recipe, that is important. There are exceptions where you can just dump everything in and it won't make a difference, but for most things- like this bread for example- it is very important to mix it as stated in the recipe.

    Hope that all helps, don't ever hesitate to ask questions if you have them!

    Alena Jo says:

    I made this today and I didn't tell my kids that zucchini was in it (they wouldn't eat the plain zucchini bread I made a few days ago). They devoured this! It was yummy. But I felt like I was cheating. It's probably so bad for us. Does the bad outweigh the good?? ;-) It tasted like the chocolate muffins at Costco.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe and thanks for the tip about the top of the pan. It worked wonderfully!

    Jim says:

    I just put my loafs in the oven….they smell WONDERFUL!!! I am sure they will taste great too, everything i have made from your blog….pasta salad, kabobs, toquites….have been fantastic! thanks for the inspiration!

    Holly Knott says:

    I have this in the oven right now and cannot wait to taste it! Just read your tip on slathering it with butter. Oh my. Chocolate, sugar and butter! But yes, because it's called a bread and not a cake, then it *must* be healthy! I will post about this on my own blog later and direct people here for the recipe. Thanks!

    OMG!!! I made this for my daughter’s 29th birthday today! I am going to mail her loaf tomorrow….our loaf is half gone! I didn’t think anything could top my regular recipe, but this one did in leaps and bounds. It was a lot of ingredients and mixing and measuring, but it was worth every bit of it! Love your blog…just found it!

  73. 73
    Rachel says:

    I couldn’t give one away because I know I could eat 2 loaves by my self!! But I’ll probably double the recipe because my family and I LOVE zucchini bread/bananna bread, you name it. :)

    Happy Cooking!

    Sarita says:

    Okay, so I’ve made this twice now, and both times confirm the fact that this is the best zucchini bread EVER. Like, period. That’s it. *grin*

    Susan M. says:

    This receipe is the perfect zucchini bread! My kids were woofing down slices and asking for more chocolate “cake”. :) The texture is great and I enjoyed the addition of chocolate without the bread being too sweet. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

    Lori says:

    I just made this Chocolate Zucchini Bread tonight, and it was wonderful. My husband loved it, and he is doesn’t like sweets very much. It was very moist, and the topping makes the top nice and crunchy. Thanks!

    Brianna says:

    Just tried out this recipe today, and the bread turned out beatifully! I made one 8″ loaf and two mini loaves. I took the mini loaves out about 10 minutes before the 8″ loaf. My husband loved the first warm slice right out of the oven so much that I don’t know if he’ll let me give away the mini loaves like I was planning. Luckily, I’ve got tons of zucchini from the garden, so I’ll definitely be making more of this recipe! Thanks a bunch!

  79. 79
    Jessy says:

    Love this recipe made it a bunch of times, this time I added walnuts and it was amazing! I also did 1 cup white flour and 1 cup king arthur’s whole wheat flour and you can’t tell a difference, just a way to make it a little healthier. You have to use king arthur’s whole wheat though because other whole wheat flours are to grainy and don’t taste as good.

    pwoggy@yahoo.com says:

    I baked this bread 3 weeks ago and then adapted it to a gluten and dairy free version for my two boys and friend, (I had a lot of zucchini). My wheat free and regular versions were a huge hit!!
    If anyone is intrested this is what I did:
    flour mixture of 1 cup Brown rice flour, 1/2 cup Tapioca starch and 1/2 cup of Quiona Flour.
    For sour cream I opened a can of full fat cocount milk that had been still for a few days and scooped the cream form the top. ( FYI the cream can also be whipped and used instead of cow whipping cream, yummy!)

  81. 81
    Haley says:

    I love this recipe…I think it’s “the one” for me too! I made it today for my book club but I did it cake style (I put it in a bundt pan and still used the topping but when I inverted the cake after baking the topping was on the bottom). I also made a brown sugar frosting with cream cheese, butter and milk for the top that was perfect with it.

  82. 82
    stephanie says:

    substituted 1 cup of fresh ground whole wheat pastry flour and it was perfect!

    Tammy says:

    I’m about to make loaves and muffins, and wondering if anyone has frozen them? I’m not sure the zucchini would freeze well…? Also, how many days will it keep fresh for company? Thanks for the great recipe!

    • 84.1
      sara says:

      Yes, they should freeze just fine. It’s best eaten fresh, but if you wrap it well and store it in an airtight container it should be fine for a few days.

  85. 85
    Jenny says:

    When you grate the zucchini, do you wring out any liquid afterwards? I am thinking if you don’t squeeze a little bit of the liquid out the bread will be too wet and soggy.

  86. 86
    Abby says:

    I’m so excited to try this recipe. Did you use dark brown sugar or light brown sugar? Or does it even matter?

  87. 87
    Asia says:

    I have made this several times and it’s awesome, but HOW do you get the bread flipped out of the pan without losing the yummy sugary top? Mine always falls off.

    I am just wondering if you would mind sharing your pumpkin bread recipe? I am still looking for “the one” :-)

    After checking a bunch of sites for an appropriate recipe I picked yours which I will make tomorrow. I love the way you present the recipe so personal and the tips that you include as well. Thanks so much.

    Hello,

    Made the chocolate zucchini bread earlier this afternoon and LOVE it. Made one change, substituted applesauce for the oil to save some calories and fat. Do you think that yogurt could have taken the place of the sour cream? I am interested in great taste but also want to trim calories wherever possible.

    The pictures on your site are also helpful. Must be alot of extra work but very appreciated out here.

    Thanks, Pat

    Elizabeth says:

    I doubt anyone else will need this tip, but I have a toddler with failure to thrive, and I made these with full fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, increased the chocolate chips to 1.5 cups, and added 3 cups of chopped walnuts. I used some mini muffin tins and some regular muffin tins. They came out great!

    Rebecca says:

    Can someone please help me?!? I have no idea what happened with the topping, but it didn’t turn out at all. It made like a crust over the bread, so that when I turned the bread out of the pan all of the topping/crust fell off. The bread tastes amazing, but doesn’t look very pretty at all! What did I do wrong? Thanks so much!

    I have loved all your recipes I have never been diasappointed. Recently I Have been diagnosed with a gluten allergy, so I have to modify everything now to gluten free flour. This chocolate zucchini bread turned out so yummy with the flour I can’t wait to make more!

      I have no idea :) Calphalon maybe? Nothing fancy, just a non-stick one I probably bought at Target or something :)

    This looks great! Question for you – my grandmother used to make a chocolate prune bread that was similar, but she never used a recipe. Do you think I could substitute prunes for the zucchini?

    Made this last night. I used whole wheat flour and coconut oil in place of canola. I made 24 muffins and a loaf. Delicious!!!

    Yum! I love this stuff so much! I made it once last season and now am attempting it again. I have your cookbook and just love it so much. My question is this: how long would I bake it if I’m using mini loaf pans? I want to give small ones as gifts for the girls I visit teach!

    This is delicious! I used gluten-free flour, extra sour cream (had a 150ml carton, so just over 1/2 cup), more brown sugar and less white, and did one big shallow pan. (This is getting like a Whole Foods comment!) Moist and moreish. I probably won’t be giving any of this away ;-)
