Recipe for Chocolate Zucchini Nut Bread
Crock Pot


    Chocolate Zucchini Nut Bread

    1/2 cup shortening
    1 cup granulated sugar
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/3 cup baking cocoa
    1 1/4 cups zucchini, pureed or blended
    3 tablespoons milk
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

    Cream sugar and shortening in mixer. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla extract. Add everything else and mix thoroughly. Pour into a greased 2-pound coffee can or a crockpot bread insert. Cook for 3 hours on HIGH, or until the nut bread tests done with a wooden pick.

    Let stand until it's medium cool to the touch before unmolding.

    Serve with butter or cream cheese.
