This is my all-time favorite zucchini bread recipe. Of course, I just love those blueberries. My downfall. So why not put these two together? With the addition of lemon, it was a big hit with my husband.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Tender and moist, this is a loaf of lovely zucchini bread. Perfectly sweet, there's a slight lemon flavor that goes well with the blueberries. A wonderful quick bread to use summer zucchini and fresh blueberries. Enjoy this zucchini bread for breakfast, a snack, or light dessert at room temperature or slightly warm.

We made two large loaves and they baked for about 50 minutes. If you don't have cinnamon extract, you can add a touch more ground cinnamon to the batter.
  • Greasing loaf pans.
    Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease and flour 4 mini pans or two regular bread pans.
  • Eggs, oil, extracts, and sugar mixed in a bowl.
    Combine the first 5 ingredients together until well mixed.
  • Dry ingredients added to a second bowl.
    In a different bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.
  • Combining wet and dry ingredients.
    Now add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients alternately with the buttermilk, ending with flour mixture.
