Baking with Zucchini | 4 Classic Recipes

4 recipes for baking with zucchini

Too many zucchinis?

I was reading last night about abundance in the garden and how sometimes, after working so hard to make something grow, gardeners can say “enough already” when plants produce and produce.

The author’s advice: just think how appreciative you’ll feel come November. Or better yet, think ahead to February and how even the memory of freshly harvested vegetables tastes better than the winter grocery store variety.

When it comes to abundance in the garden zucchini usually takes the cake. But I never begrudge zucchini landing on my doorstep since I have no trouble cooking and baking with it day after day.

I love how baked goods made with zucchini stay lovely and moist, and how even a brownie can be a little more nutritious when made with zucchini.

If you’re overrun with zucchini (or just love baking with zucchini) here are 4 recipes for classic recipes everyone should have in their kitchen.
