A yummy and tangy version of your favorite zucchini bread recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar or 1 cup sugar & 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 1/2 cups flour

  • 1 cup zucchini, shredded
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl.
  1. Pour into greased bundt pan or 2 loaf pans
  2. If only using 1 cup of sugar in the batter, sprinkle tops with the turbinado sugar
  3. Bake about 50-55 minutes at 350°F for bundt pan and 30-45 minutes for loaf pans
  4. Mini chocolate chips and chopped nuts may also be added, if desired.

Another reason I love quick bread recipes so much is that they can be made in a single bowl without a mixer. Of course if I was doubling this recipe I would probably use a mixer, but for this amount you can mix by hand.
