Blueberry Zucchini Bread

I figured it's been awhile since my last recipe post, so why not today?  This is a really tasty Blueberry Zucchini Bread.  I love plain zucchini bread too, but the blueberries add a little zing.  And what's not to love about a little zing?  =)

MMMMmmmmmm.....It was so good! 


 Don't the blueberries look yummy?


Ingredients needed:

3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups white sugar
2-3 cups shredded zucchini
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 pint fresh blueberries (washed)


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly grease 3-4 mini-loaf pans.  I have size 3 inches X 6 inches (love this size & it's great for gift-giving!).

In large bowl, beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar.  Fold in zucchini (I used 3 cups of shredded zucchini, although the recipe only calls for 2).  Beat in the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.  Gently fold in the blueberries.  Pour into the mini-loaf pans.  (I opted for 3 big mini-loaves, but it could have easily made 4 good-sized mini-loaves.)

Bake 50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center.  

Let cool about 20 minutes on wire rack.  Slice & Enjoy!!!


I found this recipe on allrecipes.com, one of my favorite go-to places for quick and easy recipes.

There's nothing better than zucchini bread and the addition of blueberries would just make it that much better! I'll have to try that sometime!
