did adding more cocoa powder help with the chocolate flavor?

This was delicious! I made a lot of changes, basically to suit my tastes/cupboards: (vegan) flaxseed meal+water for egg replacer, 1.5 cups ww flour, 1 cup regular flour, 3/4 cup cocoa powder, 1/2 cup apple cinnamon applesauce, 1/4 cup canola oil, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup pecansinstead of walnuts, and 1/3 cup chocolate chips. I made one loaf and 12 muffins. I baked the loaf for about 40 minutes, and the muffins around 30 minutes (because my oven is tricky). They came out fantastic. Definitely a keeper! Thanks!

i tried this again, minus the cocoa powder and using larenmisplaced's changes. i think my oven was messed up (is it dying? why are my baked goods doomed so frequently now despite my thermometer?) because it didn't cook through and was flat. the edged tasted good though.

This is yummy, but I made a few changes.  I cut half of the sugar out and sub'd unsweetened applesauce, cut a 1/4 of the oil out, used 2-1/2c of zucchini, added an additional 2 tsp of cinnamon, and instead of the cocoa (which I just didn't have) I used about 1/2c of carob chips.  YUM!  Serve warm with just a little bit of Earth Balance.  ;)

made this as stated. i'm not really impressed. the bread has a good texture, moist and not too dense, but the chocolate flavor from the cocoa leaves a lot to be desired. i think next time i'll leave out the cocopowder and just make it zuch style since i like it otherwise. if i did cocoa again, i would probably cut it in half.
