Blueberry Zucchini Spice Cake

I can't remember when this recipe wasn't in our family.
Our zucchinis are just getting ready for harvest about the time our blueberries are playing out; so, I usually use frozen berries for this cake...Mama did, too.

The cream cheese frosting is versatile and can be easily adjusted by adding orange or lemon zest; or by substituting butternut or rum flavoring for the vanilla, or a few drops of liquid food coloring for special occasion color schemes.

It is the perfect way to finish off any of your cakes or cupcake
