Zucchini Lemon Loaf – Starbucks Style

Waking up to coffee or your favorite tea. Sitting back and read a book while also nibbling on some delishious zucchini lemon loaf. A perfect recipe for a perfect day!

My daughter and husband are crazy about the lemon loaf from Starbucks. If you have ever had it you would agree it’s so good. I thought that I should make an even better version of lemon loaf by adding zome zucchini.

Here is my special recipe which is AMAZING, if I do say so myself… and I do. :)
