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
3/4 cup blueberries
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...
Whisk powdered sugar, milk and juice from 1/2 lemon, Drizzle over bread...
