NOTES FOR GLAZED LEMON ZUCCHINI BREAD:

Use a cheese grater to grate the zucchini.
Be sure to dry the zucchini after it has been grated so it is NOT super watery.
You can also use all-purpose flour instead of cake flour, but we prefer cake flour.
If using a glass pan, you may need to cook 15-25 minutes longer.
Bottled lemon juice works just as well as juice directly from the lemon.
Can also be made in smaller loaf pans. You can divide batter into 4 and place in greased 6 x 2 1/2″ pans (Bake for 35-40 minutes)
Can also be made as muffins – Bake for 25-30 minutes – makes about 15-16 muffins.
For high altitude bake at 375 for 55 minutes.
