I am sharing with you this recipe for ZUCCHINI GRAPEFRUIT LOAF in hopes that you will make it and give me a feedback …. an honest feedback …..

- 2 – 2,5 cups Zucchini (grated)
STEP 1: Preheat your oven to 350F. Grease 2 – 9″ loaf pans.
STEP 2: Beat together eggs and sugar until fluffy. Gradually on medium low speed beat in apple sauce, buttermilk, grapefruit juice and pulp.
STEP 3: In a large bowl whisk together flour, whole wheat flour and baking powder. Set is aside.
STEP 4: Mix grated zucchini into wet ingredients mixture.
STEP 5: Gently fold in dry ingredients mixture. Do not overmix.
STEP 6: Evenly divide zucchini batter into greased loaf pans and bake for 40-45 minutes. Allow it to cool for 10 minutes before removing zucchini loaves onto cooling rack.
Citrus & Lavender Glaze
- 1,5 cup Icing Sugar
- 1 tsp Lemon Juice
- 3 Tbsp Grapefruit Juice w. Pulp
- 1 tsp Edible Lavender
STEP 1: Mix all the ingredients together until you have smooth , but fairly thick glaze.
STEP 2: Pour or spread the glaze over completely cooled zucchini & grapefruit loaves.
It does sounds and looks delicious …… doesn’t it?
It also have way less sugar & fat then regular Zucchini loaf with glaze. You can leave out the glaze and lower the sugar & carbohydrates …. it still will taste delicious and moist.
If you are skipping the Citrus Glaze just add lavender into the Zucchini loaf batter before baking.
