I found this recipe just at the right time! My garden was overflowing with zucchini. It has become a family favorite and it works great to make the brownie layer when you have so many zucchini that you don't know what to do, freeze it and bring it out later to frost for a quick dessert . Great for church dinners, or when the kids show up unannounced!
Trust me , this will quickly become a favorite for your family also.
