I made this wonderful and very easy dessert twice last week. It's a wonderful use for those huge zucchini. Give it a try.
Filling: Chop the white part of the zucchini into small slices. You don't want the green peel or the seeded section. You will need about 8 cups. Place them in a pot with about 3/4 cup of lemon juice. And boil, stirring constantly, until they start to get a bit of a transparent look.
Topping: Mix 8 T butter (unsalted is best) with 1 cup of flour or GF flour mix with 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum), 1/2 cup sugar, and 3/4 cup rolled oats. Mix together well with a mixer. This will resemble cookie dough.
Put it together: Place the zucchini in a 13x9 pan (lightly sprayed with cooking oil) Sprinkle a 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar, 1/4 cup sugar (I used vanilla sugar), and two heaping teaspoons of cinnamon. Use a spoon and try to mix the sugar and spice so that all of the zucchini gets some. Place the topping on top of the zucchini by small spoonfuls to cover most of the top. Bake in a 350 oven for 30-40 minutes. Will begin to brown slightly when done. Serve with ice cream. Makes 8 small servings or 4-6 for oink-oinks.
Half the people who try this swear it's apple and some guess pear.
We just swear that it's good. :)
Have a super week!
