Happy Friday! I have a blueberry cake craving and I thought I would give the zesty-in law a subtle hint just in case she is reading this…. It would be nice if she was to make this cake again. I still remember this cake to the very day. Moist, flavorful and and a great texture. I was lying on the couch last night I thought of blueberry baked goods and this is the first one that came to mind.
Do I have a post for you today? Well of course I do. This is not just any post, this recipe is brought to you by a “zesty in-law” created for a birthday celebration recently. I am pretty excited to share this recipe with you because I love both zucchini and blueberries… so I knew this was going to be a huge success.
But before we go to far into the cake details, you have to focus on the crumble top. It was so gooooood.
- 3 Eggs lightly beaten
- 3/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
- 3 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
- 2 Cups White Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
- 3 Cups shredded zucchini
- 3 Cups All purpose flour
- 1 Tsp. Salt
- 1 Tsp. Baking Powder
- 1/4 Tsp. Baking Soda
- 1 Tbsp. Ground Cinnamon
- 1 Pint Fresh Blueberries
- Sprinkle of Nutmeg
- 2/3 Cup Flour
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Tsp. Cinnamon
- 1/2 Cup Softened Butter
- Preheat oven to 350 Degrees
- Lightly grease Bundt Pan
- In large bowl, beat together the eggs, oil, vanilla and sugar.
- Fold in zucchini. Beat in flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.
- Gently fold in blueberries and move to pan
- For the crumb topping, mix the ingredients with your hands and sprinkle over the top of the loaf pan.
- Bake 55 minutes in the preheated oven or until a knife inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
- Cool 20 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack
Zesty Tip: Now as you noticed in the title, I called this a cake – which indeed it was. However if you would like to make it in loaf pans and call it “bread” I am fine with that as well.
So, I have to come clean. The night of the birthday I had two really large pieces of this cake with Vanilla ice cream and could not get enough of it. On the way home from the party we were given a big slab to take home. Once home I quickly got into that and had another piece. I am seriously suggesting if you like the ingredients in the above mentioned recipe… you so have to make this cake and tell me about it. I am so confident you will love it! Thanks again zesty in-law! It was delicious.
Next week I am on the road in Atlanta but I will be posting from the Georgia peach. I hope you have a great weekend and stay warm if it is cold, stay dry if it wet and if you are really hot… than I am totally jealous.
