1 Tblspn plus 1 tsp dried Thyme (ground fine)

2 eggs

1/2 cup canola oil

1 1/3 cup sugar

2 Tblspns fresh lemon juice

1 cup grated zucchini

1 tsp lemon extract

Ingredients For the Glaze:

1 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar

1 Tblspn half and half


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, salt, baking powder and thyme in a bowl. Set aside. In a large bowl mix together the eggs and the oil and sugar. Add the 2 Tblspns of lemon juice, buttermilk, lemon zest and lemon extract. Beat until well incorporated. Fold in the zucchini with a large spoon. Add the dry ingredients to the egg and sugar mixture and mix until just blended - do not over beat.

Pour the batter in a 9 x 5 loaf pan that has been greased on all sides. Bake for about 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle of the bread comes out clean. Set the pan on a wire rack and let the bread cool for 15 minutes. Turn the bread out of the pan and continue to let it cool on the wire rack.

Make the glaze by combining the glaze ingredients and mixing until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the top of the bread while it is still slightly warm.
