Blueberry Zucchini Bread

I found myself with an abundance of blueberries and zucchini this week.  Hmmmmm......what to do with them........

I checked the recipe section of my CSA (Abundant Harvest Organics), and lo and behold.....there's a recipe for Blueberry Zucchini Bread.  Well, I like Blueberry bread, and I like Zucchini Bread.......but would I like those two flavors together?  I wasn't positive....but I thought it was worth a shot!  And since it's a quick bread, the only difficulty is in grating the zucchini.....and really, how difficult is that?

Well, the answer is I love it!  And the hubby absolutely adores this bread (he insists it's cake!)!  The zucchini keeps this bread super duper moist, and the sweet blueberries add delicious bursts of flavor to go with the cinnamon-spiked bread.  Definitely will be remaking this at some point soon!


3 eggs lightly beaten                                    
1 tsp salt
1 cup vegetable oil                                       
1 tsp baking powder
3 tsp vanilla extract                                      
¼ tsp baking soda
2 ¼ cups white sugar                                    
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
2 cups shredded zucchini                             
1 pint fresh blueberries
3 cups flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease a large loaf pan or muffin tins.

Beat together the eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar in a large bowl.  Add in the shredded zucchini.   Mix in the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon until combined.  Then gently add the blueberries and fold into the mixture.

Transfer the batter to the loaf pan or muffin tins.  For a loaf pan, bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean.  In a muffin tin bake for 15-20 minutes.

Cool and then turn out onto wire racks.
