zucchini bread with a lemon glaze

It’s summer time and family picnics are in full force everywhere. I thought I would share this fun, simple recipe that is perfect for those beautifully bright picnic baskets. I have made my yummy zucchini (courgette) bread with a lemon glaze in bread and muffin form to show you both ways are great for the whole family. It’s a sweeter take on the traditional zucchini breads that I have made in the past and I love adding the sour cream it gives it a lovely texture.

I also had a lot of fun with the styling and photographing these. I was testing out my MANUAL mode which is never easy for me but I love the blurred back ground and how they turned out. What do you think? Any advice to make them better?

This is definitely a treat the whole family will love and like all my recipes its very simple to make! There are many options that you can alter this as well. Why not add raisins or chocolate chips? It’s definitely one to serve guests that are over for a cup of tea or coffee! I have in the past made them into a mini bite size muffins for a party buffet and they were a hit! Your options with these are endless.

    • Thanks hunny, glad you like the sound of it. Look forward to hearing what your girls thought. I make the muffins for the kids they love having their own and looks like a cupcake then. haha I agree got to be one of your five a day. Taste so good to be healthy too! lol haha thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  1. Ooo I love courgette and lemon bakes – goes so well together and is such a moist cake. Yum! Your pics look so good – very professional! I’ve yet to figure out the manual mode, but hopefully soon!! #tastytuesdays

    • Manual mode still scares the heck out of me and most the time I think it’s by accident it comes out great. But I am pleased with these either way. Maybe a little too dark but love them. They tasted delicious too. Great flavor combo for sure.

    • Yes do Charlotte it’s one of the family favorites for sure. So yummy and feels a bit healthy too with the courgette. hahaha Thanks for commenting and stopping by.

    • I like to think so, although the sugar probably out does the courgette! lol But at least it’s not as guilty having it. Veg and cake at the same time. Delicious.
