Make this homemade lemon zucchini bread with lemon glaze and you will be so glad you have a lot of zucchini so you can make it again and again. By now most folks that are growing zucchini in their garden are getting plenty of zucchini. I am in WI and I just found two great big ones today. They sure get away from you fast, I just checked them a couple of days ago and they were like 4 inches long.
Now they are two feet long but that is okay because I am going to turn them into this delicious lemony zucchini bread and be glad they got so big because the bread recipe only calls for one cup of grated zucchini so my two big zucchini will each make at least two loaves. This recipe comes from Nancy Creative and it is so yummy. I love the lemon and I like that you don’t need to peel the zucchini, just grate and make your bread. I have even made the bread and put it in the freezer.
Pull it out at a later date, thaw and then glaze, it is super delicious. With the lemon and buttermilk in the recipe you get a nice tang and the zucchini makes it really moist. If you are overloaded with zucchini this is a good way to use some of it up. You could also try making pineapple with your zucchini. You use zucchini and pineapple juice and can it. When you open it, it tastes like pineapple. You can find the recipe here. You can also make Zucchini Jam with zucchini and jello. The jam is really yummy and the nice thing is you can make it any flavor you like. Just choose your favorite jello flavor or flavors.
The great thing about zucchini is that it is mild and will pick up pretty much what ever flavored thing you add to it. These are great ways to use your zucchini and I love finding new ways since zucchini is usually the most abundant veggie in my garden.
