Chocolate Zucchini Loaf

Here they come. But are we ready?
You have them. The neighbors drop them off.
Road side stands are giving them away.

Solution: use this recipe to help eliminate them.

Beware: this loaf can be addicting.

3 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350.
Beat eggs; add oil, sugar and vanilla.
Combine dry ingredients.
Add to egg mixture alternately with milk.
Fold in orange peel, zucchini and walnuts.
Turn into two greased loaf pans.
Bake 50 minutes or until done.
Cool 10 minutes in pan.
Turn out and cool completely on wire rack.
