Obama Zucchini Bread - Recipe of the Week

Obama Zucchini Bread
(Chocolatey on the outside, gooey and good for you on the inside)

3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 1/4 c sugar
3 tsp vanilla
2 c grated zucchini
1/4 c baking cocoa

Mix together, grease and flour bread pan, and bake @ 325 degrees for 40-60 minutes or until done.
Cool in pan 20 minutes before removing onto drying rack. Waiting that long will help it retain moisture.

This recipe is excellent for using up that prolific cucumber-like squash that is so abundant this time of year.
Who knew chocolate and a vegetable could be so good together!!!
