Ingredients

  • 1

    large egg

  • 1/2

    cup light brown sugar, packed

  • 1/3

    cup canola or vegetable oil

  • 1/4

    cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4

    cup cup sour cream (lite is okay; or Greek yogurt may be substituted)

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 1/4

    cups all purpose flour + 1/4 cup for tossing with blueberries

  • 1/2

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • 1

    cup mashed ripe bananas (from about 2 medium/large bananas)

  • 1

    cup coarsely grated zucchini, laid loosely in cup and not packed (don't wring out)

  • 1

    cup (6 ounces) fresh blueberries (I haven't tried with frozen)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray one 9x5-inch loaf pan with floured cooking spray, or grease and flour the pan; set aside. To a large bowl, add the the first six ingredients, through vanilla, and whisk to combine. Add 1 1/4 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and stir until just combined; don't overmix. Add the bananas, zucchini, and stir to combine; set aside. To a medium bowl, add the blueberries, 1/4 cup flour (helps prevent them from sinking while baking), and toss to coat. Add the blueberries and all flour bits to the large bowl with the batter and stir until just combined; don't overmix. Turn batter out into the prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula. Tip - Evenly sprinkle the surface with 1 to 2 tablespoons blueberries for a visual pop of color. Place loaf pan on a baking sheet (for insurance against overflow) and bake for about 90 minutes (start checking at about 75 minutes), or until the top is golden, the center is set, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter. Important note- At the 45 minute mark, tent the pan with a sheet of foil draped loosely over it to prevent the top and sides from browning too quickly while giving the interior a chance to cook through. I encourage rotating the pan a couple times during baking to ensure even baking because many ovens don't bake evenly. Baking times will vary based on the moisture content of the bananas, zucchini, blueberries, climate, and oven variances. Bake until done; watch your bread, not the clock and don't worry if it takes more or less time to bake than the baking time estimate provided. Allow bread to cool in pan for about 15 minutes before turning out on a wire rack to cool completely before slicing and serving. Bread will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
