You would never guess that this crumble is made with courgettes and not apples! A butter crumble is pressed into the base of a baking tin, topped with courgettes and scattered with more crumble. Enjoy with cream, custard or ice cream.
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed this recipe, he didn't realise it was courgette inside although he had an inkling that it wasn't apple! I did add blackberries which needed using up. I also made my own crumble (on top only) using whole-wheat flour and porridge oats as we like a crunchy topping. May try your recipe next time as it is. - 14 Aug 2014
Great recipe. One suggestion. Remove the seeds from the Zucchini. That will take away the after taste and the slices look like apple slices. Also make sure the zucchini is sliced very thin. - 21 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Okay, I was VERY excited to try this and fool everyone into thinking it was apple and not zucchini. I do quite a bit of baking and have successfully made many different desserts. For this one I followed the recipe exactly, however no one mistook it for apple. It did LOOK like apple cobbler, but after the first bite it was obvious that it wasn't. It just seemed not-quite-right and had a definite non-apple aftertaste. The more crust in the bite, the better - I took a bite and got mostly zucchini and it was not good. After that, I couldn't finish it - and I ALWAYS finish dessert. My husband says that this proves the zucchini doesn't belong in dessert. We threw the rest out, and I won't be making this again. Oh well, it was worth a shot. Is it apple season yet??? - 02 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
