Let’s Bake:

  1. Prep Work:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a loaf pan with a bit of butter or non-stick spray.
  2. Mix Wet Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, sour cream, and cooled melted butter until well combined. Stir in the shredded zucchini and green onions (if using).
  3. Add Cheese:
    • Mix in the shredded cheddar cheese, saving a little to sprinkle on top before baking.
  4. Combine Dry Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt by sifting them together.
  5. Bring It Together:
    • Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet mix, stirring until they are just blended together. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Bake:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the top with the reserved cheddar cheese.
    • Place in the oven, which has been preheated, and bake for approximately 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out without any batter sticking to it.
  7. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the loaf to rest in the pan for roughly 10 minutes, then move it onto a wire rack to cool down fully.

Enjoy this savory Zucchini and Cheddar Loaf as a delightful breakfast, a tasty snack, or a side dish for your meals. It’s a wonderful way to use up zucchini and add a veggie boost to your day!
