Glazed Lemon Zucchini Bread.

We had an abundance of squash this weekend from our garden.  I made squash chips (really good), soup with squash, and then this zucchini bread.  And I think it might be my favorite zucchini bread out there.  It is not too sweet, other than the glaze, but is nice and zesty from the lemon.

I modified a recipe from here.  The only change I made was to substitute half of the white flour for wheat.  It made the bread a little dense, but not too much.

I made a few extra to give away.  I love wrapping things how I think a baker would do so.  Parchment paper and baker’s twine.  Fun.

Glazed Lemon Zucchini Bread

 (makes one 9×5″ loaf)

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat 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 lemon juice)
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup grated zucchini

Preheat oven to 35o degrees. Grease and flour a 9×5″ loaf pan; set aside.  I used the convection oven and it worked great.

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

In medium bowl, beat 2 eggs well, then add canola oil and sugar, and blend well. Then add the buttermilk, lemon juice, and lemon zest and blend everything well. Fold in zucchini and stir until evenly distributed in mixture.

Add this mixture to the dry ingredients in the large bowl and blend everything together, but don’t overmix.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

Lemon Glaze

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

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

In other news, the city might take a few more weeks on the water pipe, and I am still stuck with an iPhone rather than a real camera.  The charger is taking his time coming from China.
