If you’re looking enough to have a few large zucchini growing in your garden, grab them and use them for this recipe! You can easily use a box grater and a large bowl and shred them nice and thin. And don’t worry – no one will even know that there is zucchini in this recipe because it bakes perfectly in the loaf pan!

My boys love this simple sweet bread and are never the wiser that I’ve actually added in shredded veggies. All they ever say is that they love the lemon flavor of this simple and sweet dessert.

How do you know when the bread is done baking in the oven?

The toothpick test is perfect! Once the toothpick you put into the center comes out clean, it’s time to take the bread out of the oven and let the cooling process start.

Pay attention to the baking time and then test with a toothpick.

How do you keep the bread from sticking to the pan?

The best way to handle this is greasing and flouring the pan. Once it’s cooled completely, you can plan on taking it out of the loaf pan and cooling on a wire rack.
