zucchini is my drug of choice.

I made this once a few months ago, and one bite in my boss proclaimed “this is my crack.” Ever since, I get a request for it..mmm once a week. The first time it came out dense, more like a pound cake. I had halved the recipe and subsequently eyeballed the 1/8th teaspoon of baking power which probably resulted in the denser bread. I also added 2 large handfuls of chocolate chunks, instead of the small handful of mini chocolate chips that went in this time.  I like a more respectable ratio of zucchini to chocolate, call me crazy.
Bottom line: this stuff IS like crack. Light and fluffy, not to sweet, and makes you feel reallllll good inside.
