  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour an 8-inch round cake pan. Refer to my favorite pan preparation method in the Notes.

  3. Add the eggs, oil, vanilla, and milk into the center of the flour mixture well. Mix batter together until smooth.

  4. Fold in the grated zucchini and blueberries to the batter.
  5. Pour batter into the prepared pan and baking for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted into the center and comes out clean.

  6. Remove from oven. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan then turn out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

Frosting

  1. To make the frosting, cream the butter and cream cheese together with a mixer until smooth.

  2. Add the powdered sugar, salt, vanilla, and heavy cream and beat until smooth.
