“My mom would always put a bumper crop of zucchini to use with this wonderful quick bread. It can be spiced or sweet, a loaf or a Bundt cake. Mom preferred to keep the spices and chocolate separate, but I like them combined. Either way, this unusual family favorite is sure to please your family and guests just as it has mine.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Grease two loaf pans or one Bundt cake pan.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and spices. (If making with chocolate chips, you may omit the spices.).
  4. In a separate bowl, cream sugar and eggs. Stir in oil and vanilla.
  5. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and stir until incorporated. The mixture should still be quite dry. Add shredded zucchini and stir until batter is moist and zucchini is incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips if desired.
