Lemon Zucchini Loaf with Lemon Glaze

How about a slice of heavenly Lemon Zucchini Loaf to go with your cup of tea or coffee today?  So moist, light, delicious and almost “healthy” with a lovely lemon glaze!

This year I decided to grow my own zucchini, not knowing that they needed to be pollinated or anything like that! But the bees must have been busy and did the work for me ~ I was lucky and they are growing….I did lose a few to end rot but the rest are growing very healthy in my greenhouse.  So with so many zucchini, I’ll be posting a few favorites!

This recipe is from  Nancy Creative  and I adapted it a little by using coconut oil, some whole wheat flour, egg whites, and yogurt and skim milk instead of the buttermilk.  I also only used half of the  glaze ~ and don’t forget, it has hidden vegetables!

This loaf is so good!  If you love lemon, give this recipe a try 🙂 You won’t be disappointed.

wp-image-317349766jpg.jpgIngredients:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 2 TBSP lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup grated zucchini (no need to peel) Squeeze zucchini dry and discard liquids.

Lemon Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice, fresh squeezed

Preparation: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×5 loaf pan.

In a large bowl, add all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt.  Stir to combine. Set aside

In large mixing bowl, add egg, egg whites, coconut oil and sugar.  Mix to combine.  Add yogurt, skim milk, lemon juice and lemon zest.  Mix to combine.  Stir in zucchini.

Add dry ingredients to zucchini mixture and stir just until combined.  Do Not Overmix.  Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan.  Distribute evenly in pan.  Bake 350 degrees for 30 – 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Remove from pan and cool on cooling rack.

For glaze, mix icing sugar and lemon juice until smooth.  Pour over cooled loaf.  Cut into slices and enjoy! 🙂

NOTE:  Remember to squeeze liquid from zucchini and discard. Do not overmix batter. This loaf freezes beautifully without the glaze ~ once thawed, add the glaze.

    I usually use zucchini in chocolate cakes, but love the idea of using it with lemon. Will keep this in mind, it looks very tasty! 🙂

    This looks delicious! And the lemon sounds like the perfect complement to the zucchini’s flavour. Lovely for summer 🙂
