  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup Kemps Sour Cream I used regular but you can use their light sour cream, if preferred.
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • dash salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease a sheet cake pan or 9 by 13 inch pan.
  • Beat the sugar, sour cream, and eggs together for 2 minutes.
  • Stir in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Fold in the shredded zucchini and any additional add-in's.
  • Pour the batter into the pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool.

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Beat the cream cheese and butter together for about 3 minutes.
  • A bit at a time, add the powdered sugar beating well after each addition.
  • Add the lemon juice and zest. Beat again.
  • Spread the frosting onto the cooled bars. Serve or chill.


I use a sheet cake pan for these bars but a 9 by 13 would work, as well.
