Glazed Lemon Zucchini Bread

It’s fall and zucchini is in season.  I bet you can find a lot of fresh wonderful zucchini at the farmer’s market.  What can you do with all of this zucchini?  How about a yummy loaf of glazed lemon zucchini bread?  It has a freshness from the lemon and the glaze adds the right amount of sweetness.  The secret ingredient to make this bread light and airy is cake flour.

Step 7:

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes; until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.

Step 8:

While the bread is warm, make the glaze and spoon over the bread.  I poke holes throughout the top with the toothpick before adding the glaze; it allows the glaze to seep down into the bread for an extra layer of lemon goodness.  To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, lemon juice and milk until all smooth.
