Great recipe! I "Weight Watcherized" this 2 two points per serving (12 in pan) by cutting sugar to 10 tblspoons (roughly 1/2 cup) and crumbled 8 graham crackers sheets as topping without butter. My kids and husband just loved it warm from the oven with a scoopof ice cream. Yummmm!
This was SUPER!! I had to make a dessert for a group of people and I had them all fooled!!! And so easy to make! Thanks for the recipe! I need to add that I used a 20 oz can of pineapple and a standard cake mix with pudding and it turned out awsome!
Made this for a family pot luck and it was a huge hit. Even some normally picky eaters went for seconds. Amazing how much it resembles an apple dessert. Followed the recipe (yellow cake mix) but left the nuts off. Suggest the zucchini be cooked until just tender crisp - it will finish in the oven - for apple like texture. Very easy, very tasty and will certainly make again many times. Thanks so much Teah!!
Wow, I was suprised at how good this was. I wast trying to find something new to do with zucchini, and this is a real keeper. My kids LOVED it. I left the nuts off and only used 1/2 cup butter (I think 1 cup would be too much) but otherwise followed to the letter. Great recipe.
Im sorry I forgot to review this sooner! Ive been using this for over a year now. Everytime I serve it people beg me for the recipe. This is so wonderful. I think it is better than apple cobbler. I make it exactly as written, except I dont use lemon juice (usually dont have it on hane) and I dont use nuts. It usually takes mine a little longer than 60 minutes to brown up nice on top. Thanks for the great recipe!
It really does taste like apple! My father-in-law didn't believe me. Great recipe to use older/larger - ones-that-got-away zucchini. Boiling the zucchini really helps to soften them. If it is too sweet, try making a different topping like a crunch topping with oatmeal.
I love apples, am an apple pie fanatic. Unless the zucchini is sliced very thin, I could tell it was not an apple.
Having way to many zucchini coming out of the garden, I was desperate for ways to use them up but not wate them. This recipe is WONDERFUL! I followed the directions exactly as it says and everyone was Ooo-ing and Ahh-ing over it. I think it is better then apple pie and alot less work. My son's girlfriend says she doesn't like apple pie but couldn't get enough of this, tho it does remind one of apple pie. I will be taking it to church functions and neighborhood parties soon. THANKS!
This is an absolute wonderful recipe. It is hard to believe that it is really zucchini, and not real apples in the recipe. Everyone LOVES it here..Thank you for the great treat and wonderful way to use zucchini. By the way my grandchildren are getting their veggies this way, and don't even know it.
GREAT way to use the zucchini crop ! I steamed the zucchini for 5 minutes, then proceeded with the directions. We were having dinner out with friends, so I made this for dessert after. Asked them what they tasted -- they leaned toward pear, but "maybe apple" -- served with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. They were super surprised, and did not believe it was zucchini until I showed them the recipe. We all enjoyed it. Thanks for posting, Teah.
