This delicious and quick snack bread is sweetened with powdered stevia, and will 100% satisfy your afternoon tea cravings 🙂
If you don’t have any powdered stevia, you could add more sugar and sweeten to taste. I can’t tell you if it’s as good toasted the next day because it didn’t last more than 24 hours before being eaten… one of those recipes 😀
You could omit the glaze and serve with sweetened yogurt or cream.
Lemon Zucchini Bread
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil
Zest and juice of one lemon
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/3 tsp powdered stevia leaf
3/4 cup grated zucchini
Maybe a dash of water
3 Tbsp icing sugar
1 tsp butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease a 10cm by 20cm loaf tin (this is quite a weeny loaf 🙂 ).
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, oil and lemon juice and zest until combined. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and stevia. Gently fold half of the dry ingredients and half of the zucchini into the wet ingredients, followed by the rest of the dry ingredients and the rest of the zucchini. The aim is not to over mix; the batter will be quite thick, but add a dash of water if you think the dry ingredients aren’t mixing in well enough.
Pour into the tin and bake for 25 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean when inserted. Cool for 10 minutes in the tin, then un-mold and leave to cool slightly.
When the cake is cooled, mix together the glaze ingredients and pour over the top of the cake. Top with some lemon zest if desired. Enjoy while it’s still warm and the glaze is runny or when cooled completely. Lasts well, and is just as delicious the next day if kept in an airtight container.
