    Delicious! Lemon flavor is there without being too strong, sweetness is there but it’s still a bread and not a cake. The only change I made is that I increased the amount of zucchini to 2 3/4 cup because I shredded too much, and it still turned out perfect. I made 1 regular sized loaf and 4 mini loaves. The mini loaves baked for 40 minutes and the regular loaf baked for 65 minutes, until toothpick came out clean. My son, boyfriend, and coworkers loved it!

    Added a bit more lemon zest and juice for a stronger lemon flavor. Delicious!

    I followed recipe but made 4 mini loaves and 5 cupcakes. I baked all for 20-25 minutes. All in all, the bread is good; however, I agree that it is not as lemony as I would like. Very dense and moist bread.

    Pretty darn good! As with most of us here, we seem to tinker with recipes. Some of my alterations are because of missing or low amounts of items because of covid and I will note the changes. That all aside. This was nice and moist. Beautiful density. I added a bit more lemon juice since I ended up having about 1/8 c extra from squeezing lemons and didn't want to waste. I love lemon so... no problem. Also added extra zucchini since I goofed up a food delivery and ended up with zucchini coming out if my ears and needed to use it up. Added an extra 1/2 cup. Instead of all white sugar since I am running low I did a mix of white and brown sugar. I also did not make the glaze since I am out of powdered sugar. It was of course less sweet but I still loved it. So did the family. The recipe by the author is a really easy one to tinker a bit with so long as you have enough flour eggs baking soda and salt. I am sure you could use oil instead of butter ( but butter tastes better) or reduce butter or oil by 1/3 and still have a good quickbread. Winner!

    it turned out great! I made 5 small mini loaves, baked for 45 minutes. would add a little more lemon to the bread and make a double batch of glaze next time

    Not really lemony enough. I took it out of the oven after 45 min, wish I took it out even sooner because it got a bit dry.

    Perfect! I tried 1/2 the batch in a 9” loaf pan (baked 50 min) and the other 1/2 in 12-cup muffin on (baked for 20 min)

    So good! I made them into muffins and mini-muffins and just cut the cooking time down to 20 mins for muffins and 10-12 mins for mini muffins!!! I also added a little carbonated lemon to the lemon juice in the glaze and it adds an extra little pop!!!

    Not nearly as lemony as i thought... i would definitely increase the amount of zest and the amount of lemon juice next time. the cake was really moist and it was probably done just after the 45 min mark in my oven.

    Wonderful! This is very good zucchini bread. I didn’t change a thing although it only took about 50 minutes to cook.
