Lemon Zucchini Bread

May 31, 2022 | Recipe, Dessert

Fresh lemon flavor and super moist! A great way to use summer zucchini. A wonderful dessert or afternoon snack. 

Servings: 12 

Ingredients:

  • ⅓ Cup More Than Olives Meyer Lemon “Organic” Olive Oil, + oiling pan
  • 1 ½ Cups Grated Zucchini, loosely packed
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Zest
  • ⅓ Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • ¾ Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 ½ Cups All-Purpose Unbleached Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¾ Teaspoon Sea Salt

Lemon Glaze (Optional):

  • ¾-1 Cup Confectioner’s Sugar
  • ½ Fresh Lemon, juiced
  • ½ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Directions:
P
reheat the oven to 350°F. 

Begin by grating your zucchini and zesting the fresh lemons. Add them into a large bowl. 

Also add to the bowl the brown sugar, More Than Olives Meyer Lemon Olive Oil, Greek yogurt, eggs, and vanilla extract. Stir to combine. 

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sea salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Gently stir the ingredients until they are just incorporated. 

Using a loaf pan, typically 9×5, generously brush the bottom and sides of the pan with More Than Olives Meyer Lemon Olive Oil.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and gently jiggle the pan to settle the mixture evenly in the pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes. When ready remove from the pan.  

Before serving make the glaze, if you choose to use it. In a bowl, whisk together the confectioner’s sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, and sea salt until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled bread or slice the loaf and lightly drizzle each piece. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
Tonia Nichols

“Delicious and aromatic California olive oils and highly flavorful balsamic vinegar varieties! The employees are always friendly and helpful. I really appreciate that I can refill bottles too.”
