Lemon Zucchini Loaf from @kitchenmagpie

Yes, I am already thinking of baking with zucchini, thus the lemon zucchini loaf recipe in April. Please don’t judge me. We have just come out of a long winter here in Edmonton and I am done!

I’m planning the garden and dreaming of baking with zucchini!

Why I haven’t combined the two flavours before, I’ll never know, because this was an absolute HIT with the family!

Lemon Zucchini Loaf from @kitchenmagpie This lemon zucchini loaf is amazing. It’s tangy, sweet, uses up zucchini ( oh, just wait until this summer when there are sooooo many to use up that you run out of ideas!) and the frosting?

So. Darn. Good!
