Thanks to my daughter-in-law’s sweet grandfather (who is 86 years old and keeps a GIANT garden!), I inherited this GYNORMOUS ZUCCHINI! It measured a whopping 16 inches tall, and was about 6 inches across! I happen to love fresh garden vegetables, and zucchini is one of those that I typically prefer just steamed or stir-fried, but you can see that this green giant was going to be more than the two of us could eat all in one sitting (or even two or three!)
I always feel guilty wasting any of these mouth-watering veggies, so I made a phone call to the one person I knew that had lots of experience using up garden vegetables: My mother-in-law. She has had a garden off and on for decades, and is an excellent cook, so I knew she could help me out, and sure enough, she came through! Here are two of the recipes I tried:
I have to say, the zucchini really makes the cake come out moist, and this particular one is brownie-like.
The zucchini crisp tastes a lot like apple crisp, and both are best warm and a-la-mode! (But what isn’t?!)
As a special thanks for all the veggies, I made this for my sweet daughter-in-law, who just happens to be a vegetarian!

Thank you for visiting my blog. I like what I’ve read here… I think we may be kindred spirits 🙂 I completely forgot about choco zucchini cake- YUMM! I’ll do it gluten free and eat it up! Thanks, Anna
I think you’re right! Happy to find you–love how the blogging world connects us to people we would have never met otherwise! Let me know how the gluten-free version turns out! :0)
You should also make Mock apple pie. They can’t believe there isn’t any apples in it .I got the recipe and it was also for a Zucchini Crisp but I decided to make a double crust pie. It is well liked.
I’d love to try it–I think this one had too much vinegar–I could taste it–did that one call for vinegar?
Vickie you should try zucchini noodles and lasagna ! It’s so good!!!
Send me the recipe!! 😃
