Chocolate Zucchini Bread is moist and super chocolaty! You'll definitely be making this all summer long!
Whoa, buddy...this Chocolate Zucchini Bread is amazing. Extremely moist, fudgy bread will keep you wanting more. Perfect afternoon chocolate fix, or after-dinner dessert. Every year I have zucchini coming out of my ears from my garden. Zucchini bread is one of my favorite summer treats!
Zucchini is an amazing addition to baked goodies, it doesn't have any taste, but it makes everything so moist. This bread is so chocolaty, and nobody can ever tell it has zucchini in it! You can use a 9x5 or 8x4 metal loaf pan, both baking times are in the recipe directions.
If you're like me and you always plant way too many zucchini plants in your garden, which gives you an overabundance of the vegetable. You can just go on a zucchini bread-making spree and they freeze perfectly!
So whether you grow your own zucchini or grab it at your local grocery store. Hurry up and get started on this fudgy, moist, and delicious chocolate zucchini bread!
I love warming a piece in the microwave for 10 seconds and enjoying it with a cup of hot coffee...

The first thing that comes to mind is a calibration issue with your oven. I use an oven thermometer that hangs in my oven to double check the temp at all times. That way you know what the actual temp is in your oven and what you have the dial set to many times they are off. But feel free to email me and we can chat and try to trouble shoot 🙂
I have a question... this is delicious but both times I've made it - in a 9x5 metal pan, temperature spot on - it takes about 2 hours to cook. What is happening?
It’s such a yummy bread! I have made it several times, my family just loves it!
I would start checking it after about 40 minutes, it's done when a toothpick comes out clean. It will bake faster and possiblly look darker when baked in a glass pan.
Should I bake it any differently if using a glass loaf pan?
A 3.9 box os instant chocolate pudding is what is needed. She meant the pudding already made in containers.
Confused, the recipe says instant chocolate pudding but in a reply to someone you said the kind that needs to be cooked. Please which is it, because this recipe looks delightful.
Yes, it requires the kind you have to cook. I either use Jell-O brand or my grocery store generic brand. Hope this helps Barbara, and I hope you love this zucchini bread 🙂
I am looking forward to trying this recipe, however, I have one question. My market did not have a 2.9 oz. package of chocolate pudding. Is there a particular brand that carries that size? Also, is it instant or the type that needs to be cooked. Thank you for your reply.
