  • Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  • Grease the bottom and sides of an 8x4 loaf pan.

Making The Batter

  • Combine eggs, sugar, oil, yogurt, lemon zest, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Use a whisk or an electric mixer and blend until smooth. Fold in grated zucchini.
  • Add flour, baking soda, and salt to the batter. Mix with a whisk until all the ingredients are well combined. Fold in dried sour cherries and walnuts into the batter. Reserve a couple of tablespoons of each to drizzle over the top.


  • Bake the loaf for 50-60 minutes at 350°. Use a wooden toothpick to check for doneness.


*I used a few spritzers of standard baking spray to grease the loaf pan. These are not included in the overall calorie count.
