Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Okay, I know last week I said I'd be doing a full week of zucchini recipes.  Well, life got in my way yet again.  I have yet to figure out how to keep this from happening, but when you work outside the home and have kids off track and Halloween parties, it tends to happen.  I hope you understand and can continue to forgive me!!!

But like I promised, here's the Blueberry Zucchini Bread.
  I found this recipe a year and a half ago and it's been a beautiful relationship ever since.  My family LOVES LOVES LOVES Blueberries.  I like them, but prefer zucchini, so when I found this recipe combining the best of both worlds, I HAD to try it.  I've never been sorry...well, not until I try to put my jeans on, but I have so many baked food loves, that pretty much everything causes that.

Try it.  You won't be sorry.  I promise.  I've made this with frozen blueberries, too.  It still turns out with the right flavors, but the frozen berries tend to ooze juice more in the stirring process.  So, there will be less tan bread and more of a purplish bread, but still taste delicious.

My Mom gave me a trick that works to combat some of the juice bleeding:  make sure your frozen berries are frost-free.  Then toss in a small amount of flour from your bread ingredients total. DO NOT ADD EXTRA FLOUR!  Do a quick stir to incorporate your blueberries into your batter and voila!
