Eggless Chocolate Zucchini Bread

(Alice Bingenheimer)

Note:  Yes, this great tasting chocolaty bread contains no eggs.  It does fall slightly in the middle, but your taste buds won't care.  I like baking this recipe in 3 little loaves so I have some to give away. (Cella)

2 cups white granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil or olive oil
2 cups grated zucchini
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup milk
2 1/2 cups white flour, sifted
1/2 cup cocoa
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup walnuts or raisins

In a large mixing bowl, cream together sugar, oil, zucchini, vanilla, milk, and flour.  Mix in cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.  Stir in nuts or raisins.  Bake in 2 regular-size bread tins for an hour, or 3 small aluminum foil bread tins until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Leave sit in pans for 10 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
