      I have been making this recipe for over 15 years,in fact I look forward every summer when the zucchini start growing so I can make this.It's a very good recipe and easy to make.Everyone that has tasted this always asks for the recipe.Everyone always thinks this is apple crisp.I can't believe only one person has reveiwed besides me.This has a rich buttery flavor,and apple (zucchini) with cinnamon goodness.You don't know what you are missing until you try this.

      This was very good! I was curious how it would taste and it was very much like apple crisp! The people I had try it, didn't even know it wasn't apple crisp and did not beleive me when I said it was zucchini! However, I used a very LARGE zucchini (which normally don't have a lot of flavor). I took a while to chop it all up, but I was easily able to remove the seeds by cutting around the center and using just the outer part of the vegetable. It was very tasty and a great way for me to use up the zucchini from the garden that got too big to eat for lack of flavor. I was pleasantly surprised! Thanks for a different way for me to use this wonderful summer veggie in a dessert. PS - I would suggest topping it with vanilla ice cream, warm from the oven!
