Blueberry Zucchini Spice Cake

Renée G.


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

How to Make Blueberry Zucchini Spice Cake
