Lemon Zucchini Bread

If you're like me and looking to use up an over abbundance of zucchini's from the garden, you’ll love this sweet bread! I made this over the weekend an and it turned out perfect with zucchini and lemon flavor combined into a fluffy bread. The glaze is my favorite part (how could it not be?) and was the perfect addition for this lemon zucchini bread recipe! Try it out yourself and let me know if you loved it....or not!
