* The recipe we use has the exact same direction and ingredients, but a cup of sour cream was added.


  1. What does the sour cream do for the bread? Does it make it more moist?

    We have *tons* of zucchini at our house right now! It all gets ripe at once. :) So there is lots of zucchini bread around our house lately! We put zucchini in a creamy vegetable and rice pie and I thought it turned out pretty well.

  2. Hi Kari!

    Yes, the sour cream makes the bred more moist. :)

    I'm so glad there are so many things to do with zucchini as everyone seems to have a lot of it! Sounds like a good recipe that you tried!

    In Christ,
