Blueberry zucchini bread

From what I hear, those of you with gardens have zucchini coming out of your ears! I wouldn't know, since I live in a townhome with about ten square feet of grass and no room for gardening. I am here to help those of you with a plentiful crop! Make a few loaves of this bread and your friends and family will love you. This bread is moist and filled with flavor, and I can tell you from experience that it is impossible to eat just one slice. If you have children, you will have to lock this stuff up!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two 9x5-inch loaf pans with cooking spray and set aside.

Shred 1 large zucchini and set aside.

I think it is so cool how zucchinis sweat.

In a large mixing bowl, combine:

2 eggs

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup light brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup sour cream

Mix with a spoon until the mixture is smooth.

Add the shredded zucchini. When measured, it should equal approximately 1 1/2 cups.

Fold in the shredded zucchini.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

Mix well.

Gradually add the flour mixture to the zucchini mixture, stirring after each addition.

Rinse 1 pint of fresh blueberries.

Add the blueberries to the bowl, reserving a handful. 

Fold in the blueberries.

Divide the mixture between the prepared loaf pans.

Sprinkle a tablespoon or two of brown sugar over the tops, along with the reserved blueberries.

Bake in the preheated oven for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Here's hoping this recipe helps those of you with a zucchini situation. Enjoy!

I just posted banana zuke bread yesterday and now I have to try this! Those blueberries look amazing in it!

Found your recipe on foodgawker and I just made a batch of this bread and it is fantastic! It smelled so yummy baking up and when tasted, certainly did not disappoint. Trying to (and nearly there) get my pre-baby body back, so watching what I eat a bit more than usual: I subbed sweetened applesauce for the oil and vanilla yogurt for the sour cream and cut the sugar back a full cup (1/2 of each). It turned out delicious and I definitely be making this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Ha! I love that you snapped a shot of the sweaty zucchini :) This bread looks ACE! A combo I would not have come up with on my own but now that you've gone with it, I'm thinking it sounds pretty genius. Well done!

Luv, luv, luv this yummy bread!
Your site, recipes & pic's are fantastic! Yes, had to show hubby how darn cute...the sweaty zuke pic = ))
I am visiting my mom in ND. I sent her this recipe, she made 5 loaves, she shared a loaf or two, put one in the freezer for me to try. Like she said it is fantastic! Already a family favorite, she has shared the recipe with her friends! Thank you! <3

Made this tonight and it's SO good! I followed the suggestions Ashley made but also cut back the cooking time by 10-12 minutes. I've found cutting back on the sugar and fats in recipes results in a need to bake a shorter amount of time.

I make this at least once a week! I use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and will try cutting back on the sugar as a previous poster suggests. I also sub in a cup of whole wheat flour for a cup of white.

THIS IS VERY GOOD. THE ZUCCHINI AND SOUR CREAM MAKE THIS PERFECTLY MOIST. THE NEXT TIME I MAKE IT THOUGH I WILL CUT DOWN BOTH SUGARS BY 1/4 CUP AND ADD A LITTLE MORE BLUEBERRIES. HATS OFF TO THIS BAKER!!!!

This bread looks great. I will definitely try to bake it. But I'm not sure if it's necessary to drain the shredded zucchini or if I shouldn't worry about it. I'd appreciate if you could clarify that for me. Thanx!

Hi BBJG! No need to drain the zucchini. Just shred and throw it in! Hope this helps.
