This was delicous!!! I baked it in 9x13 pan, and it made so much I took some to work and gave some to friends. Everyone loved this recipe, no one believed it was zucchini. They all assumed it was apple. Definitely a keeper, thanks for posting!!
Definitely delishcious! Made it with the another reveiewer's recommended substitution of 2 cups of rolled oats for 2 of the 4 cups of flour called for in the original recipe. I used u bleached whole wheat white flour because it's healthier, but kept the butter for the best flavor! I also added 1/2 cup of chopped pecans to the topping, and it was all the better for it, IMHO. I divided it into TWO 8x8 pans...one for me and one for my daughter. She took some to work the day after and everyone wanted the recipe! My husband, who doesn't often care for sweets, ate it and loved it...mainly because I used two huge, overgrown zucchini she hat had escaped his eagle eye in the garden! I think the overgrown zucchini a are better to use for this recipe, because they made more "apple-like" slices. Be sure to peel and scoop out all of the "woody" fibrous insides with the seeds before cooking in the lemon juice!
Excellent- a little on the sweet side, but delicious. I used 4 fairly large yellow squash for the recipe. My son thought it was awesome;I didn't confess it was zucchini.
I made half the recipe using an 8 by 8 glass baking dish. I used one small zucchini and one small yellow squash. My son swears it is apples! Extremely tasty!
This was very yummy and does taste like apples. When I first saw the recipe I was a little nervous about all the lemon juice. I cheated and grated the zucchini and skipped the boiling step since the peices were smaller. When I added the lemon and sugar it smelled strong of lemonade and got a little concerned. Once it baked in the oven, it was not lemony at all just tender and sweet goodness.
I made this last weekend and it was delicious! I opted to add chopped pecans, and I swapped 1/2 of the flour for oats. No one could tell it was zucchini (even after I told them) and it was very, very delicious! It was a great conversation piece also.
EXCELLENT!!!! This was the perfect recipe to use with the extra zuc's from my kitchen garden. The kids and family loved it and I'm looking forward to eating a slice tomorrow. In regards to there being too much topping I have to disagree. When this is made in a jelly roll pan..or any other rectangular size one..the topping looks like too much but it does come together nicely and I like a nice thick topping. I replaced a 1/4 cup of the white sugar for the filling w/ brown as well as the topping. I also replaced a 1 cup of the flour w/ 1 cup of whole wheat. You could not tell the whole wheat was in there very much~! I will be making this as my standard pot luck bring-a-long. Thanks!
Zucchini mixture can be prepared, cooled and frozen for future use. Makes a great dessert in the winter.
I made this from two large zucchini that a friend gave me. Everyone who tried it thought it could have been apples. Next time I make it (and I will), I will either use a larger pan and increase the amount of zucchini or cut back on the crust/topping mix. Thanks for a great recipe!
This really does taste like apple, yum...I made the filling as directed but did my own crumble mix with less butter & sugar and added oats & LSA for extra nutrition, the kids were none the wiser they were eating zucchini, now I know what to do with all that zucchini that's growing in my garden!
