  • Large bowl
  • Hand mixer
  • Box grater
  • 10x13 Baking Tray


  • 4 medium zucchini trimmed and grated
  • 2⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup butter melted
  • cups cake flour or AP flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • cup semi-sweet chocolate chips plus more for topping
  • Butter or baking spray for greasing the pan


Start the Zucchini Batter:

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9x12 baking pan and set aside.
  • Combine the eggs and sugar in a large bowl and whisk with a hand mixer until smooth. Add the vanilla extract, heavy cream, and melted butter and whisk again until smooth.

Sift the Dry Ingredients:

  • Sift the flour into a second bowl and add the baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.

Combine the Wet and Dry Ingredients:

  • Add the sifted dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients. Use the hand mixer to whisk until just combined. Do not over-mix the flour!
  • Fold the chocolate chips into the batter.

Bake the Zucchini Bars:

  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Transfer to the oven for 40-50 minutes. Test with a toothpick at 40 minutes. If it doesn't come out clean, bake an additional 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

To Serve:

  • After the zucchini bars are cooked through, remove from the oven to cool. As soon as you remove from the oven, sprinkle a few additional chocolate chips on top and allow them to melt into the top of the zucchini bars. After the loaf as cooled, slice into bars.
