Lemon Zucchini Bread:

1 cup grated zucchini
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
1/2 cup buttermilk
Zest from one lemon


3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon milk or cream


Lemon Zucchini Bread:

  • Place an oven rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.   Generously grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan with Crisco.
  • Zest the lemon.
  • In a small bowl, mix the flour, salt and baking powder.  Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the eggs until combined.  Add the sugar, oil, lemon juice, buttermilk and lemon zest.  Beat, on medium speed, until well blended.  Add the zucchini and mix just until blended.
  • Add half the flour mixture and mix on low speed until combined.  Add the remaining flour mixture and again mix until the flour is incorporated (no signs of flour and the batter is a consistent texture).
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.  Bake at 350 for about an hour (60 minutes).
  • Transfer the pan to a cooling rack and allow to cool for a few minutes before turning the bread out of the pan onto the rack.  Cool completely before glazing.


  • In a small bowl or Pyrex mixing cup, whisk the powdered sugar, lemon juice and milk until smooth.
  • Drizzle evenly over the bread.

    Thanks for the fun recipe! This looks like one similar on Favfamilyrecipes.com. Except your recipe has no eggs in it. Is this true or a typo? Thanks a bunch!

      Thank you for catching this! We mention what to do with the eggs in the instructions but accidentally missed adding them in ingredient list. Oops! So much for double-checking. Guess we better start triple-checking everything. We appreciate you noticing and bringing it to our attention. The recipe has been updated. Thanks again!
