Notes

FEATURING: Zucchini (or pattypan squash)

Rachelle shared with me this recipe (http://lilluna.com/glazed-lemon-zucchini-bread/) which I only slightly adapted below. This is yet another zucchini bread recipe, albeit with a twist. The lemon gives a nice quick to the bread and the lemon glaze, although optional, really brings a nice humph. You could reduce the sugar a little if you want. After you grate the zucchini (either fine or medium with a cheese grater) and measure it, just press it between your hands over a bowl or the sink to drain most of the water out (to avoid the bread or muffins to be too runny). You can use real lemon juice or bottled lemon juice.

NOTES:

- If you make loaf bread (makes one 9x5 bread), bake for 40-45 min at 350F, until golden brown.

- If you have cake flour: Replace the 3/4 cup all-purpose flour and 4 Tbsp cornstarch with 2 cups of cake flour.
