Glazed Lemon Zucchini Bread

A favorite of late summer in our house is this lemony treat. It’s lighter and fluffier than the traditional zucchini breads we usually bake and the lemon gives it a citrus freshness complimented by the sweetness that pervades the bread and glazing. This is a perfect snack bread to enjoy with a cup of coffee and a friendly conversation.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs(beaten)
  • 1/2c oil
  • 1 1/3c sugar
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2c buttermilk
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 1c grated zucchini

DIRECTION:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Mix dry ingredients (flour, salt, and baking powder) and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl put your eggs, oil, and sugar together. Mix well.
  4. Add the lemon juice, buttermilk, and lemon zest to the liquid  blow and blend evenly.
  5. Combine the wet and dry together and mix well.
  6. Add the zucchini to the mixture, folding until it’s thoroughly mixed.
  7. Split the batter between the two plans evenly and back for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean at the center.

The Glaze:

The glaze is a simple powdered sugar glazing with lemon added.

  • 1c powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp milk

Mix the ingredients and drizzle over your COOLED lemon zucchini bread. You may want to use the back side of a rubber scraper or spoon to spread the glaze more evenly over the top of the bread.
