Blueberry Zucchini Squares


2 cups shredded zucchini (do not pack)
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup butter, softened
2-1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
3-1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon salt


1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 15x10x1-in. baking pan.

Toss blueberries with remaining flour; fold into batter.
