    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 lemon juice)
    Zest of 1 lemon
    1 cup grated zucchini (you donft need to peel the zucchini before grating it)

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


Preheat oven to 35o degrees. Grease and flour a 9~5 loaf pan; set aside.

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ft overmix.

Pour batter into prepared 9~5 loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (if your oven tends to run hot, check the loaf after 40 minutes; also, if you make this in an 8~4 loaf pan, your baking time may be a little longercabout 5 to 10 minutes more). Cool in pan 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack and cool completely. While loaf is cooling, you can make the glazec

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

  • This is very good, and looks just like the picture. But it is different from the common dense, sweet zucchini bread I was expecting. This is crumbly and less sweet. Because there are no spices, the zucchini flavor comes through more clearly. This makes it easier not to overeat, as well! :) - 3/15/14
