Glazed Lemon Zucchini Bread

A favorite of spring and 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.

To be honest, there's a ton of stuff - not all of it rosy - about me on the internet so there's nothing new to say here. I like food and sharing my recipes.
