Chocolate Zucchini Bread

from the King Arthur Flour website

Yield: one 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf.

INGREDIENTS
2 large eggs
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp espresso powder, optional
1/3 cup King Arthur All-Purpose Baking Cocoa or Dutch-process cocoa
1 2/3 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
2 cups shredded, unpeeled zucchini, gently pressed
1 cup chocolate chips

METHOD
1) Preheat the oven to 350°F; lightly grease an 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan.
2) In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, honey, oil, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
3) Add the salt, baking soda, baking powder, espresso powder, cocoa, and flour, mixing until well combined.
4) Stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips.
5) Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
6) Bake the bread for 65 to 75 minutes, until the loaf tests done (a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center will come out clean, save for perhaps a light smear of chocolate from the melted chips).
7) Remove the bread from the oven, and let it cool for 10 to 15 minutes before turning it out of the pan onto a rack.
8) Cool completely before slicing; store well-wrapped, at room temperature.

Dried cranberries and nuts are also delicious additions.
