The lemon zucchini combination in this Lemon Zucchini Bread is just downright delicious! It’s so much better than anything you could buy at a store, and it’s easy to make, too.

How to Make Lemon Zucchini Bread:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 8 x 4 inch loaf pan. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. In another bowl, combine sugar and lemon zest and stir well.

  • Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to rest in the pan for 10 minutes before removing the loaf onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
  • While the bread is cooling, make the glaze by combining the powdered sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the bread. Slice and serve.

    Absolutely delicious!! Used a 9” circle cake pan instead. An instant family favourite, will definitely make again 😀

  2. I happen to have a large egg with a double yolk. Should I just use this one or use yet another egg that is doubled yolk. I know this sounds weird but my latest purchase from a farm, this is what you get.
