Eagar Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I can’t take the credit for this little gem but it was given to me when I married and became an Eagar. It is a family favourite, normally prepared with zucchini fresh from the garden in the backyard, and eaten over a summer weekend. Made with chocolate chips or nuts of all sorts.

Eaten with coffee in the morning, snacks during the day or served with tea at night. It is a wonderful way to get a full serving of a vegetable many neglect.


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil (do not use olive oil)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini (peeled or unpeeled)
  • 3 square semi sweet chocolate cubes
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • (Optional: chocolate chips, raisins, or chopped nuts)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. In a large bowl blend the eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla, and zucchini.
  3. Melt the chocolate squares in the microwave.
  4. Start adding the dry ingredience- flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, blending together, add the melted chocolate.
  5. Optional ingredience can be added to the mixture but I like to top with them.
  6. Grease two regular sized bunt pans with margarine, butter or baking spray.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes or until an inserted fork is clean when removed.
