This is a delicious bread with a hint of orange.
Makes 2 loaves
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup oil
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups grated zucchini
1/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Generously grease two 8 by 4 by 3 inch loaf pans. (The bread will stick if the pans aren’t greased enough.)

Stir in the zucchini, nuts, and chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pans.
Bake for about 1 hour.
