Zucchini “NOT APPLE” Crumble
Don’t tell anyone, but this hot Zucchini Crumble recipe is like apple pie, but with veggies! Sweet, caramel zucchini with a crunchy cinnamon crumble on top, this is the perfect comfort food dessert!
Yep, you read that correctly. ZUCCHINI Crumble. Not apple. Not peach. Not berry. Straight up zucchinis my friends.
Did you know that you can swap out apples and use zucchini in your sweet recipes? No seriously. Take a peek at my favorite Apple Crumble here, and you’ll see today’s recipe is practically identical.
My family had no idea that this was NOT apples. The cinnamon, the nutmeg, the crunchy crumble on top…it was deceiving you guys! And I love having another use for all the zucchini in my garden. A use that doesn’t involve another loaf of bread. Because let’s face it…having 12 loaves of zucchini bread in my freezer is enough for a little while…I’m craving something different!
Don’t forget to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of your warm Zucchini Crumble. Or are you a whipped cream fan? Either way, it’s a great pairing. And you’ll feel good knowing you stuck veggies into dessert!
