Best Zucchini Bread. . .The Glaze Gets Raves!
Hello my friends, I know that there are 1,000’s if not millions of recipes out there for Zucchini Bread.
BUT, I just have to rave about how delicious this recipe is!!
I got it years ago from a dear friend.
I dressed it up with pretty garden blooms, Zinnia’s and Portulaca to help convince you. Hee-hee! See how they bring out the colors of my pretty china platter?
I really don’t think you need any convincing. My oldest daughter, Nichole took a loaf to work the other day and she said everyone raved about it.
Seriously, there are two things that I love about this bread:
1. It has a crunchy outside but the inside is so moist.
2. The glaze, did I mention how much I love the glaze? lol!
Here it is before I glazed it. See that crunchy goodness?
3 eggs 1 c. Oil 2 1/2 c. Sugar
3 tsp. Vanilla 1 tsp. Soda 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Cinnamon 3 c. Flour 2 c. Zucchini, grated
1 c. Nuts
Combine eggs, oil, sugar, & Vanilla. Beat until well blended. Add dry ingredients and blend. Stir in squash and nuts. Grease 2 loaf pans, (I spray with Pam. Fill 3/4 full. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Cool in pans for 15 min. Remove and finish cooling on a rack.
1 Tbs. Butter, melted 1 Tbs. lemon juice
1 Tbs. Milk 1 C. Powdered Sugar
Stir together, if too thick add a little more milk. Spread on top of cooled loaves.
The truth is, there is only one problem with this bread. I can’t stop eating it!
Even with the glaze I like a thin spread of butter. . .YUM! (Me and Paula Deen)
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
