This is a very fragrant zucchini loaf recipe, which a colleague gave me 20 years ago but I had misplaced. With an abundant crop this year, I'm glad I found it!

How to Make Lemon Zucchini Loaf


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 loaf pans (8x4 or 9x5).
  • 2In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Use a fork or whisk so that everything is well blended.
  • 3In a separate bowl, beat eggs slightly, add oil, zucchini and freshly grated lemon peel. Whisk or beat one minute.
  • 4Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients. Stir only until no more flour is visible. Do not over-mix or loaf will be tough.
  • 5Spread evenly in the prepared pans.
  • 6Bake 1 hour or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire rack 10 minutes, then remove and glaze while still warm.
  • 7To make glaze, add just enough icing sugar to make fairly runny glaze. Drizzle over top of loaves while still warm. You will not need entire glaze, in fact I only use a couple of spoons so that it doesn't overwhelm the loaf.
