  • Beat together eggs, sugar, and oil. Blend in the grated zucchini, and then the sour cream. Mix in the flour, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon. Stir in chocolate chips or raisins (see Cook's Note). Pour batter into prepared pans.

  • Bake in preheated oven until a tester inserted in the center of each loaf comes out clean, about 80 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute raisins for the chocolate chips--or use 1/2 cup of both!

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Smells heavenly when it's baking! I replaced the oil with applesauce (made no difference in taste and of course, it's healthier) and only used choc. chips in the one loaf. Also, my oven time was 60 min. and they came out perfect. It was the first time I'd used zucchini so I enjoyed the new experience......our garden is (as most gardeners who grow the veggie) being overrun by the things! Happy baking!! Read More

The chocolate chips didn't mesh well with the rest of the flavor of the bread. Read More

This was the 1st recipe I ever used to make zucchini bread. It's the last one I'll make. Absolutely divine! P.S. I made it without chocolate chips. Read More

Fabulous cake-like texture but I find draining/drying the grated zucchini first is essential to keep the bread light. The recipe is not specific about how to 'prepare pans'. Buttering and flouring seems to work best for me. Just buttering or oiling doesn't allow the cake to fall out of the pan. I love this one with added vanilla and lemon zest - not crazy about the chocolate chips. Read More

My family loved this recipe so much that I've already made it twice in a week. It is really easy and yummy. Based on some of the other reviews I cup the sugar down by 1/2 a cup. I still felt it was too sweet (and I generally like sweet things!) So I agree with a some of the other reviewers to cut the sweetener down. This next batch I cut it to 1 cup sugar & 1/4 cup maple syrup... it's much better. Also I found that the bake time was a lot shorter than the recipe called for... my stove has a thermometer in it so I can't explain why I only needed to bake it for about 40-45 minutes? I'll keep this one as a favorite! Read More

Great recipe! I followed some ideas on other reviews--I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 2 cups white, and only 1 1/2 cups sugar, and only added chocolate chips to one loaf. I liked the chocolate one better, but I do have an addiction, so it may not work for everyone! Read More

This bread is delicious! I made it for holiday gift-giving and everyone loved it. The chocolate chips in this bread are a nice touch and I think the sour cream adds a tasty sort of moistness to the bread. Read More

This was awesome! I am an "easy" cook - as long as it's easy I'll make it. I made this and everyone that tried it couldn't say anything but how great it was. Definitely a keeper!! Read More
