Mama’s Zucchini Cobbler

Zucchini CobblerZucchini Cobbler! What??

This is my “Mystery Cobbler.” It is fun to take to carry-in dinners and have guests guess what the “fruit” is. Most guess apple. I have had many other guesses, including green tomato, pear, and even quince. Most will eventually guess zucchini, because zucchini is a very versatile fruit that take on the flavors you put with it.

Yes, I said fruit, because botanically zucchini is a fruit. In the culinary world zucchini is usually served as a vegetable, but I am breaking the rules here and making it a fruit. 

It’s a delicious way to use up all that extra zucchini from your vegetable garden. You will be amazed at how delicious zucchini can be!

Now…watch, as I turn ordinary zucchini into a…super delicious cobbler.

Ingredients for Zucchini Cobbler:

Filling-

8 cups chopped, peeled zucchini (Smaller, tender zucchini work best for this recipe.)

2/3 cup lemon juice

1 cup pure cane sugar

1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon nutmeg

Crust/Topping-

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

1 cup pure cane sugar

½ cup butter, softened

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions for Zucchini Cobbler:

Zucchini cooked

Cook zucchini and lemon juice for 15 minutes in a medium, covered saucepan, stirring occasionally. Watch as the zucchini magically turns in to apples, before your eyes. Not really…but you get the idea.

Zucchini CinnamonRemove from heat and add 1 cup of sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Coarse Crumbs

To make the crust/topping; mix flour, sugar, cinnamon, and butter in a separate bowl, until the mixture forms coarse crumbs. A fork will work for this, but you may need to get your hands in there to work it a little.

Zucchini with topping mix

Take ¾ cup of this mixture and stir it in to your zucchini filling mixture. Split the rest of the crust/topping mixture in half.

Crust for Zucchini Cobbler

Press one half into the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan.

Zucchini Filling on Crust

Pour the zucchini filling on top of the crust.

Crumb topping on zucchini filling

Top with the remaining crust/topping mixture.

Baked Zucchini Cobbler

Bake Zucchini Cobbler at 375 degrees F for 30-35 minutes, or until topping is lightly browned.

Enjoy! Try it with ice cream!
