Lemon Zucchini Bread

Lemon Zucchini Bread-this is the BEST zucchini bread recipe! The bread is super moist and the burst of lemon is amazing!

Our friend brought us a huge bag of zucchini from her garden and I have been making zucchini everything. Tis the season!

I’ve made zucchini nachos, zucchini cookies, zucchini noodles, zucchini bread, zucchini pancakes, and our zucchini cake. I’ve also been stirring extra shredded zucchini into my favorite marinara sauce. The boys don’t even know it’s there. I guess I am going a little zucchini crazy.

I think you will appreciate my zucchini madness because I also created a new zucchini recipe that is going to knock your socks off. This Lemon Zucchini Bread is the BEST! You HAVE to make it.

The bread is super moist thanks to the zucchini and olive oil. It is also bursting with lemon flavor thanks to the lemon zest, lemon juice, and sweet lemon glaze. Don’t skip the glaze because it really is the icing on the bread…or cake.

I call this recipe zucchini bread so I can eat it for breakfast and not feel guilty, but it could easily pass as a loaf cake. I would eat it for dessert any day. Heck, I would eat it anytime of the day. Call it bread or call it cake, either way it is delicious!

I also love this recipe because it makes two loaves. We enjoyed a loaf and shared one with our friends. The boys were sad to see the second loaf to go out the door, but I promised them I would make more soon. Good thing there isn’t a zucchini shortage this time of year. I can bake zucchini bread all day, every day!

If you are looking for a recipe to use up your zucchini, make this Lemon Zucchini Bread. It is our new favorite zucchini bread and I think you will love it too!
