    Serves: 6 

    • 1 23cm unbaked pie shell
    • 1 cup (125g) peeled, cubed zucchini
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 cup white sugar
    • 125g butter, melted
    • 2 tablespoons plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

    • 45g butter

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Extra time:30min cooling  ›  Ready in:1hour30min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a 23cm pie dish with the pie shell, and place the pie dish onto a baking tray.
    2. Place zucchini into a food processor, and process until pureed. Transfer the puree to a bowl and whisk with eggs, white sugar, melted butter, flour and the vanilla essence. Pour the mixture into the pie shell.
    3. To make crumble: Place flour, brown sugar and butter into a bowl. Cut the mixture with a pastry cutter until the topping resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the pie filling.
    4. Bake until the filling is set and the topping is lightly browned, about 45 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.

    My family loved this! The sweetness overtakes any flavor from the zucchini. The only disappointment is that it doesn't use very much zucchini. Garden growers tend to have a lot of zucchini. Overall, it was delicious. My kids and husband asked me to bake them another one. We also topped ours with vanilla ice cream. Yum!  -  24 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    LOVE LOVE LOVE this pie! Everyone who has tasted this pie loved it! I have even passed out the recipe! So far I have made 5 pies with the only change being a little extra vanilla! ( I have had the recipe 2 weeks, lol) DO NOT doubt this recipe. DO NOT stick up your nose to the fact there is zucchini in it this recipe is AWESOME! Getting ready to go make another one now....  -  14 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was absolutely delicious! I didn't think that zucchini sounded appetizing in a pie, but I was willing to try...and I'm glad I did. It definitely doesn't taste like zucchini. It's just like a custard pie with a sweet topping. It was also extremely easy to make. I will definitely make this again!  -  09 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
