Do you need to peel the zucchini?
There’s no need to peel the zucchini for this recipe, in fact, I love the flecks of green in the baked loaf. If you have little mouths that refuse to eat anything green, then you can peel it to hide it further.
Don’t squeeze the zucchini once you have grated it, you want to get all that moisture into your loaf.
How long does it keep?
This lemon zucchini bread will keep well at room temperature for around 3 days and up to a week in the fridge. Keep it in an air tight container or wrapped up to keep the moisture in.
Can you freeze it?
Yes, this bread will keep well frozen for up to 3 months either glazed or unglazed. Once the frosting has fully set, wrap the loaf in plastic wrap or foil and place in a freezer bag.
Thaw the loaf at room temperature to enjoy.
- Try not to cut into your bread until it’s completely cooled. If you do, as I have done in the past, the zucchini doesn’t taste quite done because it’s still warm. This all resolves once it has cooled down. He won’t notice the zucchini at all and are left with a moist, delicious bread.
- For more lemon flavor on your glaze, add in one to two teaspoons of freshly zested lemon in or sprinkled on top of the glaze.
This lemon zucchini bread is so fresh and flavorful, I just knwo you are going to love it. Simple to make and delicious to eat!
