Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups (or less) sugar
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 2 cups unpeeled, coarsely grated zucchini, drained slightly
  • zest of 1 lemon, grated
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 3-1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup (or more) frozen Maine wild blueberries

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Beat the eggs. Add the sugar and beat until well mixed. Add the oil and beat. Add the zucchini, lemon juice, and lemon zest and mix well.

In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt, soda, and baking powder and add to the wet ingredients, mixing well. Gently fold in the blueberries. Pour the batter into 2 greased and floured 5x9-inch loaf pans. Bake approximately 55 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center of one of the loaves comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool 10 minutes, then remove the loaves to a wire rack to continue cooling.

    Delicious! Made with fresh lemons and blueberries. I added a lemon glaze, made of powder sugar and lemon juice, to the bread after cooking. I love and make a lot of zucchini bread and this is hands down my favorite!

    I was just looking for a recipe to use what was in season this week in our garden and came across a blueberry zucchini bread, made it and everyone thought it was good. A day or two later found this recipe with the lemon addition and wow! It’s really great! I will absolutely make this again, hmmmm, like right now.
    I knew Yankee Magazine would be a dependable source…they didn’t let me down.

    Very tasty. I baked it in an oblong cake pan and finished with cream cheese frosting. Probably a little too moist for that treatment, but my knitting group liked it.
