"This is THE BEST lemon zucchini bread I've ever baked or tasted. The recipe came from a friend of my mom's. She kept raving about this bread that she had made while she was visiting. After I made it the first time I can understand why. If I don't put this in the freezer right away, it is gone!!! Butter is really good on this bread if you aren't worried about the calories, fat, etc." — Cheyenne

This bread is very moist. I didn't have lemon extract so I used fresh lemon juice. I glazed the top with a thin lemon/powdered sugar glaze. Very tasty!
Eh this was just okay. Needs to be more moist. Applesauce and a little oil may do the trick
My boyfriend and I LOVE this recipe. It's one of the best breads we've ever made. We actually halved the recipe to get one loaf. Also, lemon extract can be substituted with lemon juice (rule of thumb is 3x amount of extract called for, i.e. 3 teaspoons of lemon juice for 1 teaspoon of lemon extract). The dusted sugar on the pan gives a nice crisp, but sweet outside, while the zucchini makes the inside super moist!
My family loved this recipe. Since it makes two loafs I made one true to recipe and to the second I added 1 cup of glazed cherries.
This was a huge hit!
I used half whole wheat flour and half white flour, substituted applesauce for vegetable oil, threw in a grated carrot along with the zucchini and reduced the sugar by 1/4 of a cup. I also used the juice of 1 lemon and grated some lemon zest into the batter.
I cut it into slices and when I went to get more to put it onto a platter for a little social gathering, I noticed it was all gone! Great recipe! Thank you for sharing!
the recipe calls for 3 cups flour,2 cups sugar
In reference to the comment about the recipe. Read further, the 1 tsp of sugar is for dusting the pan, the flour amount is later in the recipe. I think the recipe is written accurately. Can't rate yet, will be making this evening!
Made this last night, delicious. My grandchildren loved it and best of all it makes 2 loaves, cause you'll want lots.
