  • Shred 1 1/2 cups of zucchini without squeezing.
  • 1/4 cup green onion, sliced (optional)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat Oven: Begin by heating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a regular loaf pan and keep it aside.
  2. Prepare the Zucchini: Shred the zucchini using a grater. It’s important not to squeeze the moisture out of the zucchini as it helps keep the bread moist.
  3. Mix Wet Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded zucchini, sliced green onions (if using), eggs, sour cream, and melted butter. Mix until well combined.
  4. Add Cheese: Fold in the shredded cheddar cheese, ensuring it is evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
  5. Combine Dry Ingredients: Mix the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl.
  6. Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures: Blend the wet and dry mixtures by gradually adding the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until they’re just combined. Be cautious not to overmix, as it can result in dense bread.
  7. Bake: Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan, ensuring the top is smooth. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center emerges clean.
  8. Cool and Serve: Allow the bread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and serve.
