Lemon Zucchini Bread with Lemon Glaze

I found this recipe on Pinterest because I had a bushel of zucchini!  It originated from NancyCreative.  It is divinely delicious and could be a dessert!  Here it is:

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour or bread flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
Juice of 1 lemon (or 2 Tablespoons lemon juice)
Zest of 1 lemon
1 cup grated zucchini (You don't need to peel the zucchini before grating it!)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease/flour a 9 x 5" loaf pan; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, blend flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  • In medium bowl, beat 2 eggs well.
  • Add canola oil and sugar and blend well.
  • Add the buttermilk, lemon juice, and lemon zest and blend well.
  • Fold in zucchini and stir until evenly distributed into mixture.
  • Add this wet mixture to the dry ingredients in the large bowl in three increments, blending after each addition - but don't over-mix!
  • Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes or till toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Smaller loaf pans may take 5-10 minutes more.
  • Cool in pan 10 minutes; then remove to a wire rack and cool completely.
Lemon Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar
Juice of 1 lemon (or 2 Tablespoons lemon juice)

  • In a small bowl, mix powdered sugar and lemon juice till bell blended.
  • Spoon glaze over cooled loaf.
  • Let glaze set and serve!
