When I posted my gluten free zucchini bread recipe earlier this week I had several requests for my “regular” zucchini bread recipe.
This is a great basic zucchini bread recipe. It is delicious just as it is or you can dress it up a bit like I did this week. I decided to add blueberries and a streusel topping – so good!
Just like eating a blueberry muffin.
I add the streusel topping about 10 minutes into the baking time so it doesn’t get too brown.
This recipe is also great with a cup of mini chocolate chips added in instead of the blueberries. Chocolate just makes everything better, doesn’t it?
I made mine in mini loaf pans so I did a few different variations – just plain old zucchini bread. Zucchini bread with blueberries and streusel topping and then zucchini bread with just streusel topping and no blueberries. Have to say, my favorite was the one with blueberries and streusel topping!
So if you don’t have any zucchini in your garden ask a neighbor or just pick one up on your next trip to the grocery store like I had to because zucchini season is over in our garden.
