Lemon Zucchini Bread

Time for another Secret recipe Club reveal. This month I was assigned the blog Cooking on the Ranch. Lea Ann blogs from Denver and has a really great blog filled with such lovely photographs of her recipes.  I decided early on that I wanted to make her jalapeno bacon cheese ball, but at the last minute I changed my mind because I knew that Randal would prefer the Lemon Zucchini Bread and I love anything with lemon anyway, and it was just as delicious as we thought it would be!

2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 cup grated zucchini

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a loaf pan.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, add the oil and sugar and mix together.  Add the buttermilk, lemon zest and juice.  Add in the zucchini and then add to the dry ingredients, mix well.  Pour into a loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes, or until cooked through.  Let cool completely

Lemon Glaze:
1 cup icing sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice

In a small bowl mix the sugar and juice together, pour over the loaf and leave to set. 
Pin It

I haven't made lemon loaf in a long time, and I really love it. Thanks for the reminder!

Great choice for SRC! That bread is really incredible and the glaze really finishes the flavors nicely. Since it's the holiday season, you really should try that cheese ball. I served it at a party and everyone was asking for the recipe. Nice cooking with you for SRC.

I like lemon as flavor for plainer cakes. It is the perfect match. I should surprise hubby with this.

I'd never thought to combine lemon and zucchini, but it sounds like a nice and fresh tasting combo. :)
