2 9x5-inch loaves


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 3 large eggs

  • 2 cups grated zucchini

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5-inch loaf pans.

  2. Mix flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda together in a bowl.

  3. Beat sugar, oil, and eggs with an electric mixer in a large bowl until well combined. Blend in grated zucchini, followed by sour cream. Mix in dry ingredients until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into the prepared pans.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a tester inserted into the center of each loaf comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours.

  5. Remove from the oven and cool loaves on a wire rack.


You can substitute raisins for the chocolate chips, or you can use 1/2 cup of each.
