Blueberry White chocolate Cheesecake Zucchini Bread
Another one of Carol's winning zucchini bread recipes! I have yet to try one that the family didn't love :) My only changes on this one was to omit the cheesecake oil and a sprinkle of raw sugar on the top. Normally I have one loaf to freeze, but Tim is on his second piece already LOL Huge thanks to Carol for all the work she puts into creating her recipes, doing her reviews and for her and Bob's amazing pics!
