    This is a rich, chocolate bread that most will never guess contains zucchini! The zucchini helps make the bread moist and the Garam Masala spice is a wonderful, exotic complement for the chocolate.  With the chocolate glaze topping - this bread can easily be served as a delicious, decadent dessert.



2 eggs

1 cup vegetable oil

1 cup (white) sugar

2 cups shredded zucchini

1/3 cup melted dark chocolate

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 1/2 tsp Garam Masala

3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips



Blend together- 1 cup melted semi-sweet chocolate chips & 1- 2 tsp cream

Directions:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease (with cooking spray) two loaf pans.  Mix together (with a hand-held mixer) the oil, sugar, and eggs.  Mix for about 5 minutes.  Add the melted dark chocolate, vanilla extract, and zucchini and stir until combined.  In a separate bowl blend the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder, and Garam Masala.  Combine the flour mixture with the egg mixture.  Fold in the 3/4 cup of chocolate chips.  Pour the batter into the prepared pans and place in the preheated oven. Bake for about 45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.  Cool completely on a wire rack. Pour the chocolate glaze over the cooled loaves and serve.
