3 c Flour
1 c Butter; softened
1 ts cinnamon; + 1 tsp

Original recipe makes 12



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place zucchini and lemon juice in a large saucepan. cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 15 minutes. Add nutmeg, 1 c sugar, and 1 tsp cinnamon. Blend until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. To prepare crust, combine flour, 3/4 c sugar, brown sugar, and butter. Pat into a greased 9x13" pan. Bake 10 minutes. Pour zucchini mixture, which will be very watery, over crust. Bake 20 minutes more. Mix 1/4 c sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon and sprinkle over top of dessert. Bake 5 minutes more. Cool. This is a good recipe, but be ready for people to argue with you that it does have apple in it. From Ellen Cleary

i'd reduce sugar and double the zucchini next time.

I didn't have lemon, so I used calamansi (Philippine lemon). Calamansi is sweeter than lemon, but still has the sourness. I also substituted some of the brown sugar with turbinado cane sugar. You really can't tell that

I used 2 and 1/2 cups of flour and next time I will use even less. Also, I used margarine, I think butter would have made the crust better. Other than that it was delicious!! Would have liked the final topping to be a little more crumble like...

Thanxz for the recipe! Ive been looking for this high and low for the last 5 yrs. My grandpa and I used to make this every Saturday night when I was a child. While making it last night I was worried about it tasting the same and was pleseantly surprised that it turned out to taste as good as I remembered!!

Awesome! Can't tell the difference between this and apples. My vegi-phobic son had no idea he was eating squash! And a VERY welcome way to fix it since we are tired of all those zucchini coming out of the garden by now. Thanks for a great new way to deal with it!
