It's Treat Tuesday!


     This Tuesday sure does feel like a treat.  I'm hosting my very first blog hop! I'm so excited to see the many delicious looking posts and have the opportunity to connect with other Bloggers. To celebrate I'm sharing this recipe for moist and delicious double chocolate zucchini bread.  It bakes up well and makes two loaves; one for you and one to share, what could be more perfect? Go ahead, treat yourself!


  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce 
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2-3 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • In a large bowl, beat the sugar, applesauce, eggs and vanilla until well blended
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and baking powder
  • Gradually beat dry mixture into wet mixture until blended
  • Stir in zucchini and fold in chocolate chips
  • Transfer mixture into two 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans coated with non-stick cooking spray
  • Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean
  • Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely

*A special and heartfelt thank-you to Sinea over at
