"Just like apple crisp! We first made this when a neighbor gave us a HUGE zucchini he grew in his garden."

cubed peeled zucchini

This is a great way to use extra zucchini! Don't tell the kids..they will never know it isn't apples. I like to add a TBLS of flour to the zucchini mixture and pecans to the topping.
Next time, I'll add some flour to the zucchini mixture to make it a bit less juicy. That's just my own personal preference, though.
Nice recipe, but if you're using a huge zucchini, I suggest cutting the seeds out! This turned out OK when I followed the recipe, but after one bite it didn't taste like apples to me at all. I felt like the lemon juice needed to be increased as it's what really makes it have that "apple" taste. The spices and topping were right on though. The main problem was I used a large garden zucchini (like the recipe submitter described), and they can have some softer middles with larger seeds. The seeds were a bit of a turn off for me. I tried it again and cut out the soft middle with the seeds, sliced the pieces thinly this time, and increased the lemon juice by an overflowing tablespoon. I still knew it wasn't apples, but it was more enjoyable for me this way. It was good, especially with some Cool Whip on it, and I'll probably make it again next year with my changes.
This certainly tastes like apples - next time I will use a little flour with the zucchini, as ntate suggested. I also increased the lemon juice to 2/3 C and the sugar to 3/4 cup. I used the food processor to make the topping, just pulsing it all until it got crumbly. I needed to bake it a little longer as well - an hour did the trick.

It seriously tastes like apples. It fooled the kids AND the boyfriend. :)
