Zucchini Bread

I was cleaning the fridge today, and found some zucchini. i hate zucchini, except for in...... zucchini bread...
Using a totally not vegan recipe found in a found cookbook, and calling my mom to see how she made chocolate zucchini bread when I was growing up, and using my vegansmarts, i made the best bread today.

3 "eggs" (i used ener-G, flax/applesauce would also be GREAT)
2 cups sugar (i used fine-grade raw sugar)(texture of reg. sugar)
.......beat together, add:
1 cup oil (i used canola/grapeseed mix)
3 tsp vanilla
.......stir well and add:
3 cups flour (i used the occident bread flour (whatever its called), any kind would work)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
4 Tbs cocoa powder
.......blend and add:
half a bag of choco/carob chips
2 cups raw grated zucchini
.......Pour into two EXTREMELY well greased bread pans.
.......bake at 350* for 45 min-an hour.

**if you want, you can omit the cocopowder and chips....and put in nuts, or raisins or coconut, or combine them in any way you want.

Also, next time, i'll put foil over the pans (loosely) for the first half hour or so, because it ended up browning a little too soon

Also, I used shortening to grease the pans, and the bread is stuck really, really bad. next time: oil and flour it or oil and sugar it.

It's amazingly wonderful, especially hot from the oven slathered in tofutti cream cheese.
