“This started out a a Paula Dean recipe but my son and I made quite a few changes that we think make this even better. We used whole wheat flour for some of it and decreased the oil and subbed in some apple butter I had on hand. We tried to make it a little more healthy but it sure didn't taste healthy! We went up to 4 cups of zucchini with good results. Make great gifts.”
