Lemon Zucchini Bread

Hey everyone! How about one more zucchini recipe, this one's a little different because it calls for lemon, I've had it forever and it's my favorite! You can make two loaves or muffins. My neighbor grew yellow zucchini this year so I used that but the colors are really beautiful when you use green zukes:@)

Lemon Zucchini Bread
3 eggs
2 C sugar
3/4 C oil
2 C zucchini, grated
2 1/2 C A/P flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla
1-2 lemons, just the zest
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans or put paper liners in cupcake pan.
  3. Mix everything except zucchini. Fold in the zucchini.
  4. Bake 45-50 minutes for bread, approx 22-25 minutes for muffins.
  • You can definitely cut back on the sugar (actually I suggest it).
  • I estimated 1/3 of the recipe and ended up with 7 big muffins.
  • It's your call on how much lemon zest you'd like to use, I've made it with one and it's extra lemony with with two. 
Have a happy day:@)

  1. Oh, I should be mowing the grass, but these are calling my name! I gotta make these today! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  2. Lynn, I have the same recipe, cut it out of a magazine back in the early 80's. I used to bake these all the time to bring to the office when my garden gave me bountiful zukes. (before West Nile spraying killed off our worker bees that pollinated them so well!). Have to bake these this week! xo

  3. Mmmm, a tasty way to use up that summer zucchini! Please pass the muffins, I'd love one with my coffee!

  4. Where do you come up with these great recipes?!! You should make a cookbook! I am definitely going to try this, I think I have everything right now! Yum!


  5. Hi Lynn
    I have more yellow zucchini right now than anybody could possibly eat, so this recipe has come right when I need it.
    I can make a batch of muffins and freeze them, yay!
    Now all I have to do is find more recipes for the 2lb round zucchinis which are fast taking over the potager.
    Thanks again

  6. Great recipe and badly needed with all the zucchini around at the moment - love the addition of lemon - really brings out the flavor - lovely :)

  7. Ooh, I can almost smell the lemon. These looks delicious!

  8. Such a yummy looking recipe. Thanks for sharing it, have copied it off, if the temps stay down will try it this w/k. Thanks for swinging in to say hello... hugs ~lynne~

  9. Lynn, I may have to start a separate folder just for your recipes. I tried the bisquick coconut custard pie and just sent my daughter off to college with the pie plate full! We have more zukes than I know what to do with so I will give this a go!

  10. This is right up Chatty's alley!!

  11. Guess I am going to have to stop visiting your blog. You drive me crazy with all these tasty goodies you prepare.

  12. Lynn, the lemon zest in this makes a nice change. I'm going to try this one!

  13. I LOVE using zukes in my cooking and baking. It gives the bread a moist texture.
    This looks great!

  14. This sounds yummy, Lynn. The more lemon the better.

  15. I don't think I've had that combination before...I love lemon, so I imagine I would love this recipe! Hope things are going well at your house!

  16. You always have me with Lemon.
    Lemon anything - I'll eat it!

  17. I was wondering why they were a different color. Thanks for explaining. These look so good!

  18. Looks so yummy. I made zucchini bread & muffins today :)

  19. There is nothing wrong with another zucchini recipe. I have been making blueberry zucchini bread, I wonder how it would be if I combined the two :)

  20. These look so good, Lynn! I've never seen yellow zucchini! But I know this must be delish!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  21. Bet this is delicious..
