Cinnamon Burst Sour Cream Zucchini Bread

I love this time of year... when it's got that crispy autumn hint in the air even though it's still hot during the day, and my garden is ready to harvest. My zucchini is multiplying abundantly and I am always looking for a new recipe. I had a good  Chocolate zucchini bread/cake recipe, but this one is a good regular quick bread recipe! It's my new favorite. I found it at the preparedpantry.com, The Prepared Pantry is a great kitchen store in my area. They sell Cinnamon chips there too that are wonderful for baking, you might be able to go to their website and order some. But if you don't want to do that, Hershey's makes a good cinnamon chip too. I find those at a local store by the Hershey's chocolate chips, hopefully your local grocery will have them too! But this is a yummy zucchini bread! I suggest eating it warm, fresh from the oven. Enjoy!!!

Cinnamon Burst Sour Cream Zucchini Bread

Ingredients:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup vegetable oil (I like to use grape seed oil... it's better for you and usually found by the other vegetable oils at Walmart)
2 cups grated zucchini squash

1 1/2 cups cinnamon chips

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together. Set aside.
In a smaller bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, and vanilla together. Fold in the sour cream, oil, and zucchini.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Stir in the cinnamon chips. Do not continue stirring.
Pour the batter into two well-greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pans. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean when inserted into the center. Cool for ten minutes on a rack before removing the loaves from the pan.
                                              Slice and enjoy!!

  1. Which local store has the Hershey's chips? The Broulim's in Shelley doesn't...and neither did the Walmart on Utah Ave...
