I know zuchini shortcake sounds AWFUL. BUT, it tastes and looks like a delicious apple shortcake. 1 very large or 2 medium sized zuchini, which is cheaper than apples, will make a 9x13 apple shortcake that even your zuchini haters will love. I would bet the farm on it!
Just take the idea of turning zuchini into apples and your own apple pie or cobbler or kuchen recipe will work with this. I used a shortcake dough, which, by the way, is like Bisquick. So if you have no boxed bisquick, use the shortcake recipe for the dough in this recipe. Make it your own!

How to Make ZUCHINI SHORTCAKE?

Step-by-Step

  1. In bowl, mix together first 6 ingredients. Make sure zuchini is thoroughly coated and everything is well mixed. I mixed everything with my hands.
    Pour in greased 9x13 pan
    In bowl, mix together the shortcake ingredients with spatula. Plop globs of dough evenly over zuchini mixture. Bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
  2. NOTE: Add other fruits with the zuchini like pears, apples,pineapple (drained of course)and/or walnuts, raisins or pecans. No need to add more of the other ingredients to do this. Be creative!
  3. Diabetic note: Splenda works great in this! AND because zuchini is a vegetable no need to worry about the fruit sugars! I also would not use the brown sugar but replace it with 1/4 cup of a sugar free peach jello. Brown sugar just gives a molasses flavor to white sugar. The peach jello will give a peach flavor to the splenda in it.
