Blueberry Zucchini Bread Favors

For a wild blueberry kind of gal like me, any excuse to use blueberries in a recipe is a good thing. Not only does this recipe appeal to the blueberry lover, anyone who has a plethora of big, beautiful zucchinis in their garden will love this recipe too.

If you are making these as DIY wedding favors, simply wrap in parchment, then add a  piece of burlap for a rustic look.

  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

If using frozen blueberries, coat in flour. This will keep the berries from bleeding excessively in the batter.

    Would this work with raspberries?

    I'm sure it would Nadia - but I've never had zucchini bread with raspberries before.. .not sure what the combo would be like.

    If I'm using 2 regular sized loaf pans, how long should I bake them for?
