  • 1/2

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/3

    cup Hershey's special dark cocoa

  • 1 2/3

    cup unbleached all purpose flour

  • 2

    cups zucchini, shredded and gently squeezed

  • 1

Directions

BREAD: Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8" loaf pan. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, oil, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add salt, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa, and flour, mixing until well combined. Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake bread for 55 to 75 minutes, until the loaf tests done (until a toothpick comes out clean). Remove the bread from the oven, and let it cool for 10 to 15 minutes before turning it out of the pan onto a cooling rack. COCONUT GLAZE: In a small bowl combine powdered sugar and coconut milk. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over warm bread. Cool bread completely before slicing.
