Jenny Banks

With the bumper crop of zucchini that we are receiving this year, it's nice to have this delicious recipe on hand!


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp salt

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

3/4 cup butter

2 cups of granulated sugar

3 free-range eggs

1/2 cup milk

2 tsp vanilla

2 cups shredded zucchini


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a loaf pan and set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, as well as the vanilla, and beat well. Add the milk and stir.
  • In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon).
  • Stir dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. 
  • Add the shredded zucchini and mix until combined.
  • Bake for 1 hour.
