I loved this recipe! We could NOT stop eating it. I read all the reviews before making it and ran with a lot of the other reviews ideas. I used whole wheat flour instead of regular. 1/2 cup white sugar the rest brown. egg whites instead of eggs 1/2 cup oil & the rest applesauce 1 cup mini chocolate chips dusted in cocoa powder double the cocoa powder and used dark instead of regular. added 1 cup low fat sour cream a little bit more than 2 cups zucchini and omitted the cinnamon. I made 1 loaf 6 muffins and 1 square pan the kids kept asking for more "cupcakes" and were just going for them I froze the loaf and take slices out they are the best! The mini chocolate chips are perfect not too chocolatey so good I love this recipe!

This was absolutely delicious. You could see the zucchini, but it didn't bother us. I didn't know what sour milk was, so in case someone else is wondering too, you just mix 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar with enough milk to make the 1/2 cup and let it sit for 5 min.

My mom has been making this one for years. Same recipe with the addition of 1/2 tsp ground cloves, and grated zucchini instead of diced. I stopped by her house the other day and she was baking 7 (yes, 7!) of these to put in the freezer. They freeze great. You can dress it up a little by sprinkling on some powdered sugar after thawing. A definite winner!
