9+ Delicious Zucchini Recipes To Try

Have more zucchini than you know what to do with? Here are 11+ Delicious Zucchini Recipes to try, including cakes, loaves, pancakes, oatmeal, side dishes, appetizers and more!

Zucchini is one of the most versatile vegetables available! Actually, it’s technically a fruit, but for all intents and purpose it’s treated like a vegetable. No matter, what a zucchini is, is delicious. If you’re one of the lucky ones you have a huge summer crop, with more zucchini than you know what to do with. But if you’re like me and you don’t have a personal crop, you can buy plenty of zucchini from your local farmers markets or grocery store, and that is exactly what I do all summer long. All zucchini all the time.

Zucchini is great to have on hand because there are so many delicious ways to cook and bake with it without getting bored. Over the years here on my blog, I’ve shared a few of my favourite zucchini recipes, so I thought I would share them with you again, all in one easy to access place!

Aside from the delicious flavour, one of the best things about this bread is that you can have it made, baked and on the table in just over an hour. Fresh bread for dinner? Yes please.

  1. Made you chocolate zucchini cake last month, to rave reviews (had no chocolate chips on hand, so used finely chopped dates that made it even sweater and chewier). Funny enough, my son – who is turning 8 tomorrow – has just informe me today that he has selected it as his birthday cake recipe to be made for this year! 🙂
