Still, we kept on getting more blueberries! When life hands you blueberries, sometimes you have to make bread! And make bread we did! one afternoon, my mother in law and I made a ton of loaves including classic zucchini bread, chocolate chocolate zucchini bread, zucchini blueberry bread, and this lemon poppyseed blueberry loaf.
My mother in law and I developed this recipe together and let me tell you, it's delicious! Did I also mention that we didn't use butter in this recipe?! Because we didn't use butter. We used applesauce! Our own caned applesauce....not to toot my own horn or anything. *honk honk!*
Anyway, if you have a bunch of blueberries blueberrying around your kitchen, this is a great way to make use of them. I hope you will try it!
