15 June

 Try one of these 15 best zucchini dessert recipes when you have an overabundance of zucchini this summer. These delicious recipes are so good, your family will never suspect that they are vegetables hidden inside!


Summer means zucchini everything. Zucchini chips, zucchini boats, zucchini cake, and zucchini bread.


My kids are partial to zucchini cake with a homemade frosting recipe. Yum! My daughter usually requests it for her birthday.





There are 100s of recipes to make with this summer squash, so this year I started compiling the best zucchini sweet recipes along with main dishes, healthy recipes, breads, and more.


This is 15 of the best shredded zucchini dessert recipes. I can't wait to try more ways to use extra zucchini this summer.


15 of the Best Zucchini Dessert Recipes


Each zucchini plant can yield about 10 pounds of zucchini per growing season. That's a lot of zucchini! It's no wonder Midwesterners are known for sneaking zucchini onto their neighbor's porches.


We have a lot of zucchini in the summer. While I try to keep them healthy, we do enjoy some of these zucchini dessert recipes, especially brownies and cake!
