Zucchini Bread with Dark Chocolate Chips | @MryJhnsn

When I moved away from home my mom gave me one thing - a Betty Crocker cookbook. It was the best gift my mom ever gave me.  I could not cook to save my life but I could bake and that cookbook was my baking bible.

The chapters on breads and cookies are so worn that the pages fell out.

Better Homes and Garden Zucchini Bread Recipe

I have modified this recipe for zucchini bread over the years but I could not tell you for the life of me the last time I made it.  And then my daughter's babysitter asked me to make it for her and she would give me the zucchini.  She gave me a great big basket and I went to work.

I made seven loaves, eight mini loaves, and a pan of bars.
I am done baking until Christmas.

  • 2 tbsps baking soda
  • Pinch of sea salt

  • 1/2 tbsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp  cinnamon

  • 2 tbsps  vanilla
  • 3 cups grated zucchini
