Chocolate Cherry Zucchinin Bread

Chocolate, Cherries?  Two of my favorite things.  Add in zucchini for nutritional and fiber value and you have a great breakfast that is good and good for you.  There are 24 servings in 2 loaves.

  1 Cup Butter                                                                           1 3/4 Cup all-purpose flour
  4 Ounces Chocolate Chips                                                       1/2 Cup Dried Cherries
  1 1/2 Cup sugar                                                                       1 Tsp baking powder
  1 1/2 Cup Zucchini                                                                  1 Tsp ground cinnamon
  4 Large Eggs, slightly beaten                                                    1/2 Tsp baking soda
  1 Tsp Vanilla                                                                           1/4 Tsp Nutmeg

Heat oven to 350F. Grease and flour 2 (8x4-inch) loaf pans; set aside.

Shred zucchini and set aside in a colander to drain.  Chop cherries and set aside.  Melt chocolate chips and 2 tbl butter over a double boiler until well melted and combined, set aside.  Cream together sugar and 6 tbl butter.  Mix in eggs, one at a time, until well blended.  Mix in melted chocolate and mix well.  Stir in zucchini and chopped cherries, set aside.
