Scale

Ingredients

For the lemon zucchini bread:

  • 1 ⅔ cup (200g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (100g) sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon zests
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup (120 ml) vegetable oil, neutral in taste (canola, sunflower…)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) coconut cream*
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) applesauce, unsweetened
  • 1 cup (150g) shredded zucchini

For the sugar-less glaze:

  • 1 Tablespoon cornstach
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a 9×5-inch (23×13 cm) loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium size bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, lemon zest and juice, vegetable oil, apple cider vinegar, coconut cream and applesauce, until texture is smooth.
  4. Whisk in the wet ingredients into the dry ones, and stir until combined.
  5. Using a spatula, gently fold in the zucchini until evenly spread throughout. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, scraping down the sides.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, about 45 – 50 minutes. Let cool in baking pan for a few minutes then invert into a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. For the glaze, whisk all the ingredients in a small bowl, and drizzle over the cooled lemon zucchini bread. Let set.

Notes

* Use the solid part of a can of coconut oil only.
