Lemon Blueberry Zucchini Bread …this zucchini bread recipe is the best I’ve ever had! So moist and full of flavor!

Now that Spring is here, I’ve been itching to get my garden going. Is anyone planting zucchini this year? I’m waiting for a warm weekend here in Ohio, but I’m thinking I’ll start planting here soon.

I’ve been eyeing the zucchini at the store though and knew I couldn’t wait any longer to get my zucchini bread fix! I also made these zucchini muffins (another favorite). This bread has the perfect texture and is super soft. The lemon and blueberries add the perfect flavor to this zucchini bread. The glaze add a sweet punch. My kids devoured this bread and begged for more. They never would have guessed there was zucchini in there.

Lemon and blueberries are one of my favorite combos. I love adding fresh lemon zest to the batter because it really adds the extra punch of lemon. You won’t taste the zucchini in this recipe, but it makes it super soft. You can see how to cut a zucchini + tips for removing the excess water. You want to make sure to remove the water so that the bread doesn’t become soggy. No one likes soggy bread.

Lemon Bueberry Zucchini Bread Ingredients

3/4 cup sugar

2 large eggs

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup grated zucchini, water removed

1 pint blueberries

Lemon Glaze

For the glaze you’ll only need about a cup of powdered sugar and fresh squeeze lemon juice. I like the consistency to be fairly thick (similar to glue), so that it will stay on top of the bread and not run all the way down. It also hardens nice, so you’re able to slice it once it’s cooled.
