Mocha Zucchini Loaf

Are you still trying to come up with uses for all those zucchinis that you either grew a billion of, or that your friends and coworkers keep giving you?  I came up with one more recipe for you:

Mocha Zucchini Loaf
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup Frys Cocoa Powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp instant coffee granules
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cup grated zucchini
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350degrees.

Grate zucchini and set aside.  In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, soda, baking powder, coffee and salt. 

In another bowl, combine sugars, oil, eggs and vanilla.

Add wet ingredients to dry and stir.  Add zucchini. 

Coat the inside of your loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray (I use two little pans and make two little loafs, rather than one big one! 

If you make one big loaf, bake for about an hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean.  For my two little ones, I bake for about 50 minutes.  Your whole house is going to smell like chocolate - deeeeelish!!!!

Remove from oven and let cool on a rack.


  1. Super creative! Love this idea to mix it up a little. :)

  2. Nice. I make chocolate and zucchini all the time. Will surely give this one a try. :)
