  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 3 large eggs 
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup butter - melted
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl combine zucchini, eggs, sugar, oil, melted butter, and vanilla and mix well. Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest, and poppyseeds.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 45-60 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean ( a few crumbs are okay but no wet batter). Allow too cool on a wire cooling rack.
