Lemon Zucchini Bread

  • 2 cups zucchini shredded
  • 2 cup flour (all purpose, whole wheat or a combo of both)
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice fresh
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • zest of 1 lemon

Lemon Glaze

  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice fresh (or as much as needed to reach the right consistency)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest


  • Preheat oven to 350F and grease a standard loaf pan with butter or line it with parchment paper.
  • Place shredded zucchini in a cheese cloth or clean dish towel and squeeze out excess water. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt and mix together.
  • Add the eggs, oil, fresh lemon juice, vanilla extract and lemon zest and mix everything together until well incorporated. Add the shredded zucchini and stir until incorporated.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake in the oven for about 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  • Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edges and gently remove from the pan. Allow it to cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • In a bowl, whisk the icing sugar and lemon juice together to create a glaze. Pour over the cake. Sprinkle with lemon zest.
