I've been looking for some different zucchini recipes since I've got too much zucchini in the garden. AGAIN! I love it but need to make different recipes from it. I haven't tried this recipe yet but plan to soon.It sounds really good!
I usually change recipes to fit my tastes. The original recipe calls for 1 t. almond extract,I changed it to vanilla because I don't care for almond extract,it also adds 1/2 t. ground cloves,I've chosen to omit it.
