Zucchini Mystery Cobbler

Try this zucchini mystery cobbler at your next potluck.

From "How to Plan a Potluck for Your Farm Home" by Lisa Kivirist

We provide free entertainment for friends whenever we serve this hearty pan of cobbler. It easily feeds a dozen people and the zucchini bakes down to an apple-like texture. If you don’t say anything, folks think they’re eating apple cobbler.

Filling ingredients

  • 8 cups zucchini, peeled, seeded and chopped (about 3 lbs.)
  • 2/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

Crust ingredients 

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups cold butter (3 sticks)
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, cook and stir zucchini and lemon juice for 20 minutes or until tender. Add sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; simmer one minute longer. Remove from heat and set aside. For crust, combine flour and sugar in a bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir 1/2 cup crust mixture into zucchini mixture. Press half of remaining crust mixture into a greased 9” x 13” pan. Spread zucchini mixture over top; crumble remaining crust mixture over zucchini mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 375 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden and bubbly.
Serves 10 to 12.

We're having a BBQ gathering this weekend. I was going to try to pawn off my extra zucchini on guests, but this is a much better idea! Can't wait to try it!

I am willing to try it but I did not know you could make zucchini taste like apple.
