Ellen's Lemon Zucchini Bread
This is THE BEST lemon zucchini bread I've ever baked or tasted. The recipe came from a friend of my mom's. She kept raving about this bread that she had made while she was visiting. After I made it the first time I can understand why. If I don't put this in the freezer right away, it is gone!!! Butter is really good on this bread if you aren't worried about the calories, fat, etc.
When grating the zucchini, leave the skin on. This creates beautiful green flecks in the finished loaves. My family loves lemon so I add quite a bit more lemon extract than it calls for. I usually end up using about 2 to 2 1/2 teaspoon. I prefer to make this bread in small loaf pans. I use my Pampered Chef Stoneware 4 loaf pan when I make this recipe. The loaves are easy to freeze and easy to bake with little chance of being underdone in the middle. These are also great to give to the neighbors! This recipe usually yields about 8-10 small loaves.
