I had read all the reviews first and then decided to add 1 extra TBS of lemon Juice and 1 tsp of lemon zest and 2 tsp of Allspice. I had gone with the lemon glaze on top instead of the icing sugar. The flavor of these bars were delicious, which I am sure the lemon glaze makes a difference. Very moist bars, a wonderful balance with the lemon and zucchini. Delicious.....Thanks for sharing your recipe Calee

With my Meyer Lemon tree producing well and my fall zucchini plants producing at the same time, I had to try this recipe. It's SO much better than I expected! Delightful. I used less oil and more zucchini, and less sugar and more lemon juice. (Meyer lemons are pretty sweet.) I used the glaze, but didn't bother poking holes in the cake. It rose well and was definitely more like cake than bars! NOTE: REDUCE YOUR OVEN TEMP TO 325 IF YOU USE A GLASS PAN!
Also, I made this in the food processor, emulsifying the sugar, eggs and oil, grating in the zucchini, the pulsing in the rest. Easy peasy!

I followed the recipe with the powdered sugar on top. They were really moist and very good, but I thought they were missing something. I will try next time using more lemon juice, like others have suggested, and I will use the lemon glaze.
