Lemon Poppy Seed Zucchini Bread

½ Cup Butter, softened (room temperature)
1 1/3 Cups Sugar
3 Large Eggs
1 ½ Cups All-Purpose Flour
½ teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon Baking Soda
½ Cup Sour Cream
1 Cup Shredded Zucchini
1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest
2 teaspoon Poppy Seeds
Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Beat butter at medium speed until creamy.  Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.

In another bowl, stir together flour, salt and baking soda.  Add to butter mixture alternately with sour cream, beginning and ending with flour mixture.  Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition.  Stir in zucchini, lemon zest and poppy seeds.  Spoon batter into 3 greased and floured 5” x 3” loaf pans (about 1 1/3 cups batter per pan).

Bake at 325 degrees for 40 – 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool pans on wire rack for 10 minutes.  Remove from pans to wire racks and cool completely.
