Lemon Zucchini Bread with Sweet Lemon Glaze

Have I said before how much I LOVE Pinterest? With the zucchini coming on, I've found TONS of new recipes to try! This moist bread turned out DELICIOUS and I'm so glad I found the recipe at NancyCreative.com. Hope you LIKE it too!

Lemon Zucchini Bread with Sweet Lemon Glaze
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
Juice of 1 lemon (or 2 tablespoons)
Zest of 1 lemon
1 cup grated unpeeled zucchini (I don't think I used a full cup)

Lemon Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
Juice of 1 lemon (or 2 tablespoons)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 × 5-inch loaf pan; set aside.

In large bowl, blend the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

In medium bowl, beat the eggs, then add the oil and sugar; blend well. Stir in the buttermilk, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Fold in the zucchini until evenly distributed in mixture. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients in the large bowl and blend everything together, but don’t overmix.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack and cool completely. While loaf is cooling, make the glaze. 

In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and lemon juice until well blended. Spoon glaze over cooled bread. Let glaze set, then serve.

TIP: Try putting some parchment paper in the bottom of your bread pan so nothing sticks to the bottom!
