FAQ

Do you peel zucchini for Blueberry Zucchini Bread?

No, there’s no need to peel zucchini for bread! Since it’s grated, the bits of zucchini peel are small and don’t impact the texture of the bread.

How do I shred zucchini for zucchini bread?

You can use the shredder blade in your food processor, or use a box grater and grate the zucchini by hand. I find it easier to shred the zucchini with a box grater, rather than hauling out my food processor and then having to clean it afterward, but both ways work!

Can I grate zucchini ahead of time for Blueberry Zucchini Bread?

Yes, you can grate the zucchini up to a day in advance; store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator and drain off any excess liquid before you use it.
