Chocolate Zucchini Bread

3 eggs, gently beaten
1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar
1 C oil (I actually use a cup of applesauce instead)
2 C grated zucchini
1/2 tsp almond extract
3 T cocoa
2 C flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon

In a bowl, gently beat eggs and add sugar, brown sugar, oil (or applesauce), zucchini, and almond. Mix well. Mix in cocoa, flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Pour in two greased bread loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes.

Tastes fabulous with homemade cream cheese frosting. Of course I can't have that right now but discovered that Duncan Hines vanilla frosting is yummy on it too!
