Blueberry Zucchini Bread with Lemon Glaze

It's that time of year again. My zucchini plants are producing squash like rabbits produce bunnies.

This morning, I searched the Internet hoping to find a recipe for zucchini bread made with brown sugar, but came across this recipe and decided to try it instead. After all, my husband loves lemon and I happened to pick up some blueberries at Costco just yesterday.

I adapted the recipe a bit. Here is my version:

Blueberry Zucchini Bread with Lemon Glaze

2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup shredded zucchini
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup melted butter
2 tsp. lemon zest
1 egg
3/4 cup blueberries

Glaze:

1/2 cup powdered sugar
juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tsp milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8x4 loaf pan with non-stick spray.

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients (except for blueberries).

Gently fold in blueberries and spoon into greased pan...




Bake approximately 55 minutes, testing with a toothpick. Allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes.

Remove and cool completely...




For glaze:

Whisk powdered sugar, milk and juice from 1/2 lemon, Drizzle over bread...

Oh, yum! I just noticed 3 little zucchinis on my plant today. I imagine by tomorrow they will be the perfect picking size--or baseball bats, depending on how fast they grow. Anyway, I'm going to have to try this and your casserole recipe, too. Thanks!

OMG! That looks so delicious!! And thanks so much for the tutorial, definitely helps the culinarily (that's a word, right?) challenged like me!! I buy a lot of zucchini, but I'm the only one that likes it, so no one will eat it if I make it. **sigh** But with the way the glazing looks (and the berries inside)... Maybe they won't notice there's the evil green...
