Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon extract or lemon juice
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup blueberries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Grease and flour an 8*x5" or 9"x5"loaf pan. (we used an 8"x5")
  • Combine together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl.
  • In a separate large bowl, with an electric mixer, mix together the eggs, oil, sugar and lemon extract until smooth and creamy.
  • Fold in the zucchini then add the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
  • Pour batter into your prepared pan to about ¾" from the top of the pan.
  • Fold in the blueberries to combine with the batter in the pan.
  • Bake on center rack of the oven for approximately 50-60 minutes, until browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool on a wire rack in the pan for about 15 minutes. Carefully run a knife around the pan edges and remove bread from the pan. Continue to cool the loaf on the wire rack.

Notes

  1. You can use frozen blueberries in this recipe.
  2. You do not need to peel your zucchini.
  3. You can use either a 8"x5" loaf pan or a 9"x5" loaf pan, the 8" one will produce a taller bread.
  4. This bread can be frozen, see notes above.
  5. This can be stored at room temp for 2-3 days after that refrigerate up to 5 days.
  6. If the top is browning too quickly, place a piece of tinfoil over it to create a tent to stop it from browning.
  7. Always check your bread with a toothpick to make sure that the center is done before removing from oven.
