Last year at the Wine Tasting, the caterer served a blueberry lemon zucchini cupcake with a buttercream topping.  It was awesome!  I needed to make something for an event this week but I didn’t feel like making a ton of cupcakes so I took the idea from last year’s cupcakes and made a blueberry lemon zucchini bread.

Instructions:

First, grate about a cup of zucchini. I had to buy this at the store because we are still early in the growing season for fresh zukes.

I grated onto a paper towel so I could squeeze the extra water out of the zucchini. Next mix all your wet ingredients together and add zucchini.  In a separate bowl mix all your dry ingredients and add to the wet ingredients.

Carefully fold in the blueberries.  I had to use frozen so I tossed them in a tablespoon of flour so they wouldn’t sink in the pan.  They did however bleed blue as you can see in the loaf pan.

Make sure to liberally spray your pan or use parchment paper because I had a little bread which stuck to the bottom of this particular loaf pan which was good because that needed to be eaten right away!
