I will apologize first as I meant to take a lot more pictures of this dessert and I was hoping to have a nice big piece to take a picture of in the end. But I made this for Connor’s (my 3rd grader) class at school, which is also why the pieces are cut a lot smaller than I normally make them. Connor’s class had a tasting party for recipes that mean something special to their family. This one has been passed down and made since my Great Grandma.
Personally I like it made with butterscotch pudding but I know chocolate is more of a hit with kids. I also know people who have made it with vanilla pudding, but I am not a fan of that.
This was one of the first desserts I ever made and it turned out horrible! Why? Because I didn’t read the box of pudding and bought the kind you have to cook not the instant one… oops! Now I am really really careful about that.
So if you are like me you don’t make many breads unless it’s banana bread because hey those soft bananas are calling to be baked! So when one of the gals at work gave me 2 GIANT zucchini I decided to make bread. I looked online for recipes and found a lot, but I didn’t feel like any of them were right. So I did what I always do when I can’t find a recipe I want to use, I call mom.
She had already told me she had a really good recipe, so I gave her a call. She dug out her 100 year old recipe (as she says) and gave it to me over the phone. Now let’s address these giant zucchini, I got 6 cups of shredded zucchini out of one. So I realized fast I had more than I needed for one batch. So I made enough for the neighbors, don’t you wish I was your neighbor?
