Expert Tips

Zucchini, a cousin of the cucumber and the pumpkin, grows prolifically sometimes sprouting from finger size to baseball-bat dimensions seemingly overnight. While this green vegetable is most often used in savory dishes it can also add moisture and flavor to sweet recipes for cookies, cakes, muffins and quick breads.

Zucchini contains a lot of moisture. To avoid making the batter watery, drain the shredded squash by pressing it down in a colander or sieve set in the sink or over a bowl before mixing it with other ingredients.
