Fudgy Chocolate Zucchini Bread

We plated two zucchini plants in our garden and one died.  The surviving one looks like something that belongs in Jurassic Park, it’s massive and apparently trying to  make up for the loss of it’s companion because it’s producing these massive zucchinis that are really only fit for bread and baked goods so buckle up followers and let the zucchini recipes take over!  This one was delicious by the way.
