Lemon Glazed Zucchini Bread

Standard

Guess what? Yep, you guessed it, another zucchini recipe! This is a basic zucchini bread recipe and I added a tart lemon glaze. I always try to reduce the sugar in any recipe I make, I often replace some of it with honey. I LOVE honey, and it has so many health benefits (see my honey posts). I use a local raw honey in my area and it adds just the right sweetness, naturally! If you don’t like lemon, leave off the glaze. This bread is still delicious and moist without it. I made 4 mini loaves so I could give some away, but this would make 1 regular size loaf. These would also be great as muffins!

What you need;
For the bread –
2 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp lemon zest

For the glaze –
2 tbls lemon juice
1 cup of powdered sugar

How to make;

Mix the zucchini, sugar, honey, egg, lemon zest and oil together until combined. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon together. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until incorporated. Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. I made 4 mini loaves, 1 regular size loaf might take longer than 25 minutes. To make the glaze, mix the lemon juice and powdered sugar together and drizzle over the cooled loaf. For a thicker glaze add more powdered sugar, for a thinner glaze, add more lemon juice. Enjoy!
