Lemon Zucchini Bread


2  Cups white whole wheat flour
2  tsp. baking powder
1/2  tsp. salt
2  eggs
1/2  Cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3  Cup sugar (the original recipe calls for 2/3 cup but I found 1/3 cup to be plenty sweet)
1/2  Cup buttermilk
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1  Cup zucchini, grated


Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan; set aside.

In a large bowl, blend flour, salt, and baking powder; set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat 2 eggs then add applesauce and sugar and blend well.

Then add the buttermilk, lemon juice, and lemon zest and blend everything well. Fold in zucchini and stir until evenly distributed in mixture.

Add this mixture to the dry ingredients in the large bowl and blend everything together, but don’t over mix.

Pour batter into prepared 9×5 loaf pan and bake in preheated oven for 35-45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool in pan 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack and cool completely.

Makes 1 loaf.


About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
