Zucchini Lemon Bread

Hi Fellas..!

Last week I decided the dull weather and a stuffy nose won’t stop me from putting something delicious in my mouth :-D.

Here is a recipe of Zucchini and Lemon Bread. This soft, zesty and refreshing bread/cake is ideal for sucking boredom out of the day !!

 

I have always been fascinated by use of fruits and vegetables in desserts and this dish is again another step in that direction.

I have veganized and slightly modified this recipe to make it vegan and it turned out awesome. Tasting just like lemon and Zucchini :). Along with a coconut lemon cream the cake just gets another punch of lime which I surely loved! Another lovely option is to cover the cake with a lemon glaze. When you bite into that cake the first thing that hits you is lemon!

So try it out and let me know how you like it 🙂
