Zucchini Bread

This is a favorite recipe from our mother. Our own children grew up on this. They really thought it was chocolate cake because of all the good cocoa and cinnamon. Nothing better!

2 c. grated zucchini
2 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 c. oil
2 t. vanilla
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. salt
1 t. soda
1/2 t. baking powder
2 T. cocoa
3 c. flour

In a large bowl, blend together zucchini, sugar, eggs, oil, vanilla, and cinnamon. Sift together salt, soda, baking powder, cocoa, and flour. Mix with first mixture. 

Bake for 35-45 minutes at 325 degrees. Makes two large loaves, 3 small loaves, or a bundt pan size.

*Pecans are an optional ingredient.
*I usually dump more cocoa and cinnamon in it. YUM!
