Each recipe gives you inspiring ideas for cooking with zucchini and turning this humble vegetable into something mouthwatering, delicious, and sweet!
Zucchini Used In Dessert and Sweet Dishes
Most of us have probably come across zucchini used in the odd sweet muffin recipe. Usually, the recipe includes some other hero ingredient to help make the recipe appear more appealing – chocolate, apple, and so on. But I was pleasantly surprised by just how many recipes there are using zucchini in desserts and sweets such as cookies, bars, and cakes. I was even more intrigued by zucchini pie and zucchini pancakes – yum!
Zucchinis really are so versatile. They have a really mild flavor that takes on the taste of the other ingredients it’s paired with. So it makes perfect sense that zucchinis make an excellent ingredient for sweet and dessert cooking. They will add moisture, hidden veg, and goodness to your dessert or sweet treat.
So I hope this yummy list of zucchini desserts and sweets will bring you some inspiration as it has to me. Whether you grow your own zucchini or you find yourself inundated with an abundant supply of zucchini, be sure to give one of these recipes a try, you’re sweet tooth will thank you!
