I promise to use zucchini in savory dishes, but when it’s so abundant in the late summer and early fall I bake up a storm with it. This new recipe combines the veggie with blueberries for a quick bread that is so moist and delicious that all it needs is a smear of butter to go on top.

I make this for breakfast, brunch, and as a snack cake. I make it for my family and also for neighbors and friends. Each bite is bursting with blueberries, and the undetectable flavor-wise zucchini imparts moisture that gives the bread the most tender crumb. It’s always a hit, and it will be for you, too!

Recipe Notes

  • You can make the batter with one bowl. Just mix up the ingredients, and you’re done.
  • The blueberries are swirled into the top of the batter before the loaf goes into the oven. This keeps them from sinking to the bottom of the bread and also creates a pretty presentation for the bread. I love how the berries peek through the top of the loaf.
  • This recipe makes two large loaves – perfect for gifting or keeping them both for you. They also freeze beautifully.
  • This is such an easy recipe – one worth keeping on hand! You will love it, I’m sure.

Recipe Tips

Can you use frozen blueberries? Yes, frozen will work in place of fresh blueberries. You can also use frozen zucchini – please see the note in the recipe card at the end of the post for more details.

How long does it keep? Blueberry zucchini bread will stay at room temperature for a day or so. Keeping it in the refrigerator will extend its shelf life by several days.

Can you freeze blueberry bread? If you want to freeze the loaves, allow them to cool completely. Then, wrap them tightly and place them in large freezer bags. They will keep well up to a month or so.

Can you use this recipe to make muffins? Yes, but I haven’t tested it so I can’t say how many muffins you will get or how long to bake them. If you try this, please let me know in the comments how it works!

I’m so glad I developed this recipe to make two big loaves because they never last long at our house! The kiddos love this one, and I have to fight not to sneak extra slices from the fridge during the day. This blueberry zucchini bread is just perfect: sweet, moist, and so tender.

    Just looking at that is making me hungry! I just saw a huge bin of zucchini at the store the other day, so I know what I’ll be making this weekend.

    I would love a slice of this Blueberry Zucchini Bread! It sounds incredibly delicious!

  3. How much flour is used in the bread? The detailed instructions state the flour should be mixed with the sugar eggs, etc., but the measurement isn’t in the list of ingredients

    1. Yes, but keep them frozen blueberries, do not thaw them. If you thaw them before baking they will become mushy and will bleed into your muffin batter, turning your muffins a blueish color.
